The use of oxygenated hydrogen donors, such as α-tetralone, significantly increased the thermal stability of the jet fuel JP-8 under oxidative conditions. The mixture of the hydrogen donors α-tetralone and tetralin suppressed the formation of aromatic compounds during stressing of the jet fuel JP-8, especially 3 and 4 ring aromatics. The use of α-tetralone and tetralin reduced both the autoxidative and pyrolytic solid deposition from the JP-8 jet fuel in the fuel lines studied.
