Abstract A range of analytical techniques has been used to characterise the chemistry and morphology of a diesel-engine and an exhaust soot, and a comparison made with a selection of commercial carbon blacks. Significant differences have been observed in the chemical composition of exhaust and engine soots, particularly in their surface chemistry and the presence of adsorbed lubricant components on the engine soot. Both forms of soot differ from carbon black –particularly their elemental composition and surface chemistry. In terms of morphology, at the primary particle level, there is a high degree of similarity between both forms of soot and typical carbon blac...
