Soot Formation in Combustion represents an up-to-date overview. The contributions trace back to the 1991 Heidelberg symposium entitled "Mechanism and Models of Soot Formation" and have all been reedited by Prof. Bockhorn in close contact with the original authors. The book gives an easy introduction to the field for newcomers, and provides detailed treatments for the specialists. The following list of contents illustrates the topics under review:
Soot Formation in Combustion is based on updated contributions tracing back to the 1991 Heidelberg symposium entitled "Mechanism and Models of Soot Formation". All articles have been reedited in close contact with the original authors by Prof. Bockhorn and present the most recent and comprehensive research results on soot formation.
