The report gives results of a survey and evaluation of kinetic data on the chemical reactions involved in methane/air combustion at 1 atm pressure, 80-125% stoichiometric air, and combustion temperatures between 1500 and 2500K. First, a set of species commonly observed or postulated to play a role in methane/air combustion was selected. Next, a computer code was developed, assembling all mathematically possible unimolecular and bimolecular reactions involving those species. The report includes information on the thermochemistry, a literature survey of reported rate data, an evaluation of the importance of each reaction, recommendations of the best rate data from that available in the literature, and rate estimates for potentially important reactions for which no satisfactory rate was found in the literature. The report concludes with: a description of procedures used to calculate the thermochemistry of methoxy; a cross-index of all reactions involving a particular species; a master list of all reactions for an expanded number of species; and a summary of the information on reactions in the kinetics survey.
