The effects of Deisel-hexanol blend were investigated. Diesel and oxygenated hydrocarbon (hexane) are blended in different percentage from 5%-45% by volume. These samples were characterized and the results show that 5% diesel-hexanol blend has very low anniline point, which is a measure of aromaticity responsible for particle emission. The lower the anniline point, the lower the emission of particles and this justifies the elimination of emission released into the environment by diesel-hexanol blend at 5%.
