Kerosene is a thin, clear liquid formed from hydrocarbons

Kerosene is a thin, clear liquid formed from hydrocarbons, with density of 0.780.81 g/cm3. It is obtained from the fractional distillation of petroleum between 150 C and 275 C, resulting in a mixture of carbon chains that typically contain between 6 and 16 carbon atoms per molecule.[4]

The flash point of kerosene is between 37 and 65 C (100 and 150 F) and its autoignition temperature is 220 C (428 F).[5]

The heat of combustion of kerosene is similar to that of diesel: its lower heating value is around 18,500 Btu/lb, or 43.1 MJ/kg, and its higher heating value is 46.2 MJ/kg.[6]

Kerosene is immiscible in water (cold or hot), but miscible in petroleum solvents.
