Fast and efficient group-type (PiPNA) classification of jet fuels
This study demonstrates the performance of flow-modulated GC×GC for robust group-type characterisation of jet fuels, with quantitative analysis by flame ionisation detection (FID) and confident identification of trace-level contaminants by mass spectrometry.

Jet fuels typically consist of simple blends of different kerosene streams – such as straight run kerosene from the crude tower, hydrotreated kerosene and hydrocracked kerosene. Kerosene is known as a middle distillate, typically in the range of C9 to C16 hydrocarbons, but the precise composition will be dependent on the original crude oil from which it was derived.
