Abstract

Out of numerous additive types the detergent-dispersant (DD) additives have the most important role; their consumption is more than 50 % of the total amount of applied additives. Their function is to clean and keep clean the fuel supply system and the combustion chamber, thus the removal of deposits and the prevention of their formation. High DD efficiency of succinic-type additives is commonly known. The aim of our research work was the modification of the additive structure by the incorporation of a fatty acid methyl ester molecule into the succinic-type additive. Beside the objective to keep the advantageous properties of the conventional succinic-type additive structure, further advantageous effects were expected to be assured by the new structure of the additive. During the several steps of product design we determined the advantageous process parameters of the synthesis; we investigated the effect of the different feedstocks on the quality of the final products. Detergent-dispersant, additional antiwear and corrosion inhibiting effects of the novel additive were verified by analytical and laboratory performance tests, and by Peugeot XUD-9 engine tests. Infrared spectroscopy (IR) and magnetic nuclear resonance (NMR) tests were carried out to determine how the fatty acid methyl ester compound connects to form the novel structure of the additive.
