The use of synthetic motor fuels in road transport, synthesized from various sources (coal, oil shale, natural gas, biomass) is an important direction in ensuring the energy and environmental requirements for the operation of modern vehicles.
In the process of performing various search, research and other works on the production of synthetic motor fuels, it becomes necessary to determine their properties, for example, the cetane number (CN) of synthetic diesel fuel.
Experimental determination of this property of diesel fuel is costly, and in this regard, a preliminary calculation of the cetane number of synthesized diesel fuels through the cetane index is important.
This article presents the results of scientific research on the calculated determination of the cetane number of synthesized diesel fuels through the cetane index.
