The emission of pollutants like black smoke, particulate matter (PM), nitrogen oxide (NOx), sulphur oxide (SOx) and carbon monoxide generated by diesel engine poses a threat to the environment and is detrimental to human health. The use of emulsified diesel has been considered to be one of the possible approaches to reduce the production of harmful diesel emissions. This research has studied on the “Evaluation of Oxidizer Based Emulsifier for Diesel /Hydrogen Peroxide Blend”, which simultaneously improved the fuel economic and increased the cetane number of diesel by using oxygenated chemical. Oxidizer based emulsifier which consists of 85% hydrogen peroxide as diesel oxygenate is introduced to crude diesel by using emulsification technique to form a considerable stable emulsion during the dissociation of different nature of solvents. This paper shown an experimental result carried out to evaluate pour point, cloud point, flash point, pH value, viscosity, cetane number, calorific value and density of emulsified diesel as compare to commercial diesel. On the whole, it is concluded that the diesel consumption, NOx, SOx, CO, PM and black smoke decrease in this emulsified diesel as emulsified diesel produced promote more complete combustion.
