The article discusses the results of a study that analyzes the relationship of the octane number of the naphtha cut with the aromatic hydrocarbon content. The authors mention that the continuous increase in the octane number of gasoline with an increase in the aromatic hydrocarbon content is reflected by the functions of certain compounds. A chart that shows the equations in differential form is also presented.
