C3 - Alkylbenzenes 5. 1 TIC of common composition of gasoline (TD-GCMS). 00 32 Identifying Ignitable Liquids in Fire Debris The chemical compositions of gasoline can, however, vary because the end product is controlled mostly by physical parameters and not by its chemical composition. 7, and additionally can be found in literature [30,31]. For the identification of gasoline, fragment ions of at least the alkanes, aromatics, and oxygenates must be reviewed. 2. Each fragment ion is discussed in more detail in the paragraphs thereafter.

But as these additives are not volatile, and thus not detected by headspace ignitable liquid analysis, they will not be included in the discussion of this document. 2 Overall Composition of Gasoline The Total Ion Current (TIC) chromatogram of a common gasoline shows aromatics and branched alkanes as the most abundant components in the boiling range of approximately C4ÀC12 (depending on the fire debris analysis method employed). 1. 2 1. Mainly alkanes 2. Toluene 3. Ethylbenzene and xylenes 4. C3 - Alkylbenzenes 5.

According to ASTM E1618, these products should then be classified as “light to medium”, or “medium to heavy”. 5. Some commercial or industrial products contain a petroleum distillate fraction which is blended with other components, such as alcohols and ethers, or with products from other classes, such as Aromatic Products. These blend products are often sold for specific applications. 8. 1 Introduction LPDs consist of alkanes (normal-, branched-, and cycloalkanes) in the range of C4ÀC9. Aromatics are normally absent, or present only as insignificant amounts.
