The need for the development of jet fuels that are oxidatively and thermally stable to 480t (900T) has been previously detailed (Edwards and Liberio, 1996). Such a fuel is commonly referred to as JP-900. It is our belief that a new class of additives can be developed which, when added to JP-8, will provide both the oxidative and thermal stability requirements of JP-900. Our most recent data is presented which explores the potential of 1,2,5-trimethylpyrrole (TMP) as a potential oxygen scavenger.
