n Suid-Afrikaanse Tydskrif vir Natuurwetenskap en Tegnologie - Analise van diesel-monsters deur middel van omvattende twee-dimensionele gaschromatografie (GCXGC/TOFMS) om die smeerbaarheid van hierdie brandstof fundamenteel-chemies beter te probeer verstaan

Lubricity is the ability of a substance to prevent wear in a system where metal surfaces are in close contact. Diesel fuel injection systems rely on the fuel itself for lubrication. GCXGC/TOFMS and multivariate statistics were used to investigate which chemical classes in a diesel fuel contribute to its lubricity.
