Initial soot production data from a liquid fuel spray injected jet-stirred reactor are described and compared with previous data obtained from gas phase stirred reactors. Significant sooting differences observed for the two methods of fuel injection appear to be attributable to the pyrolysis, vaporization, and burning of liquid droplets within the spray injected reactor. Overall results imply that both chemical (structure) and physical (injection characteristics) fuel parameters can significantly affect the production of soot in stirred reactors
