Experimental and theoretical research  targeted towards the effect of formaldehyde on combustion has identified its OH-scavenging role and recent data suggests it plays an important role in combustion instability observed during engine cold-starting. This effect was further studied using a CFD approach and the kinetic inhibiting effect of formaldehyde on the combustion process has been found to be enhanced by thermal/diffusion effects.
