The report gives the results of an investigation of kinetic mechanisms governing the fate of chemically bound nitrogen and sulfur in combustion. A literature review led to several critical questions which were investigated using detailed computer simulations of reaction schemes considered to be relevant. The problem areas examined included the role of pyrolysis, mathematical modeling of a turbulent diffusion flame, kinetic mechanisms of NO formation and NO reduction, and kinetic mechanisms of the oxidation of SO2 to SO3. The report tentatively answers some of these questions, either from the literature survey or from the results of the computer simulations. The insights gained may lead to control of air pollutant emissions by combustion modifications.
