Alkylated cycloalkanes are an important chemical class in conventional fuels. Methylcyclohexane (MCH) is a simple alkylated cycloalkane that is a potential candidate to represent the naphthenic content in transportation fuel surrogates. Detailed experimental speciation data for MCH gas-phase oxidation and pyrolysis is still lacking in the literature. This work investigates the high-temperature pyrolysis and low-temperature oxidation of MCH in a jet-stirred reactor. Under low-temperature conditions, highly oxygenated intermediate species indicative of
