Biodiesel a mixture of esters, is produced from rapeseed; other potential biofuels are alcohols and ethers. As K. Kohse-Höinghaus et al. describe in their Review on page 3572 ff., the structure of a fuel molecule has a significant influence on its combustion chemistry. The complex chemical reaction pathways of the fuel decomposition and oxidation can be revealed by mass spectrometry and laser diagnostics.
