According to table 5, it can be observed that the order that best represents the oxidation reaction of the biodiesel washed with AAS is of the second order, whereas the control presented a kinetics that follows the first order.

For the first time, in a theoretical paper [11] an attempt to describe the oxidation kinetics of in situ combustion within the idea of the radical chain mechanism of aliphatic hydrocarbon oxidation reactions was made.
The presence of different metals in Pt structure, even if in low quantity, might supply the active sites of Pt with oxygen in alcohol electrochemical oxidation reactions due to oxygenated species generated, avoiding the poisoning of Pt sites by CO, increasing the electrocatalytic activity [18]; this behavior is reported in Pt-Ru and Pt-Sn electrocatalysts, due to CO adsorption energy decrease and bifunctional effect [19].
It presents that large amounts of oxygen were consumed because of the combustion reactions, and a steep decrease of oxygen mole fraction was obtained due to the oxidation reactions of the coke.
According to the experimental results, the oxidation reaction time of potassium ferrate to the three substances is preliminarily identified to be 20 min.
Mazda discovered that low-temperature oxidation reaction (in which the bonds within the molecules of fuel break and produce energy) occurs before ignition when the compression ratio is high, and the reaction leads to knocking reduction and output increase.
Then we applied three sets of elemental activity data, i.e., calculated from Thermo-Calc, molar fraction, and [a.sub.M] (M = Mn, Si, Al, Cr) = 1 to calculate the equilibrium oxygen partial pressure of each oxidation reaction. It was found that there is a significant deviation among the results calculated from different data.
"This particular site is specific for causing the activation of the oxygen molecule to produce an oxidation reaction on the surface of the catalyst," Yates says.
