A new chemical kinetic mechanism of DMF (N, N-dimethylformamide) is proposed. To assess the reliability of the mechanism, high pressure shock tube, single pulse shock tube and constant volume reactor were used to experimentally evaluate ignition delay times, high temperature pyrolysis, and laminar flame speeds of DMF, respectively. Ignition delay times of DMF/ “air” were measured for equivalence ratios of 0.5, 1.0, and 2.0, pressures of 2.0 and 10.0 bar, and temperature ranging from 900 to 1430 K. Additionally, ignition delay times of DMF/acetone/air were measured for equivalence ratios of 0.5 and 1.0, pressures of 2.0 and 10.0 bar, and temperature ranging from 900 to 1430 K. High temperature pyrolysis products of DMF/acetone mixtures, diluted in argon, were studied at 5.0 bar, temperatures between 1000 and 1600 K. Flame speed measurements of DMF/air were obtained for pressures of 100 and 200 kPa, temperatures of 398, 423, and 448 K, and equivalence ratios from 0.7 to 1.4. Simultaneously, a chemical kinetics mechanism was developed to simulate the experimental results using ChemKin Pro, with sensitivity and flux analysis being carried out to elucidate limitations and possible refinements.
