The three different kerosene fractions were prepared

The composition calculated from GC analysis R428 represented schematically in Fig. 3. Jet A-1 kerosene is a complex mixture of hydrocarbons with a chain length in the range of C8–C15 with a weighted average centered on C11. The fractions obtained by rectification have lower boiling point and therefore present a lower carbon chain length: the weighted average is C8–C9, C9–C10 and C10 for the 5%, 14% and 32% fractions, respectively.
