Vapour-mediated sensing and motility in two-component droplets

Measurements and predictions of the ignition delay time or single droplets of several two-component mixtures at atmospheric pressure are presented. The results show that ignition is controlled by the more volatile component of the mixture. The ignition delay time is round to be nearly independent of species transport in the liquid phase. Mixture reaction rates are shown to be adequately modelled by simple linear combination of component rate data.

"Sometimes I read things about me that I don’t think I’ve ever said but that doesn’t change how I act and speak. I always try to be myself and everything I can do is be honest, but I can’t control what they write. At the very beginning I was very hurt because of all the lies and bad things that people wrote or said about me, but I learned that nobody should be offended by the critics."
