This skeletal mechanism has been derived by Manqi Zhu at CERFACS.
It is derived using ARCANE from a detailed mechanism* for the pyrolysis and combustion with 451 species and 17848 reactions from Politecnico di Milano, done for propane steam cracking process, with a reasonable temperature and pressure range for steam cracking.
Cases with a temperature and a pressure in [900K, 1300K] and [1.8e5Pa, 2.5e5Pa] respectively are validated, while larger T/P range can be expected. The mass fraction temporal evolutions of main species propane C3H8 , ethylene/ethene C2H4 , propene C3H6, methane CH4, propadiene PC3H4, methylacetylene AC3H4, acetylene C2H2, butadiene C4H6 , benzene C6H6 and hydrogen H2 are ensured.
It comprises 30 transported species and 108 reactions.

But this link was available until 2019. Later, a new detailed mechanism has been provided on the website of CRECK Modeling at Politecnico di Milano.
