The thermal properties of H2O2-diesel fuel blends are investigated which have a strong impact on fuel performance. The addition of H2O2 enhances the cetane number of the blend significantly as well as the thermal conductivity and specific heat. H2O2-diesel fuel blends exhibit substantial solubility and stability even at lower temperatures and may replace pure diesel fuel.
