Fuels and hydrocarbons have a tendency towards oxidative decay and polymerisation reaction resulting in the formation of insoluble compounds. These reactions are undesirable, because the resulting gums may harm the engines and/or may block up the fuel filters.

A sufficient stability of fuels against oxidation (including especially all biogenic oils, Biodiesel) is of great importance to prevent damages and compensation claims. The use of the Chemiluminescence technology for the assessment of oxidation stability and for the daily quality control is very easy and useful.
