A short kinetic mechanism for premixed benzene/air flames was developed with a reduction method of Simulation Error Minimization Connectivity Method(SEM-CM). It consisted of 38 species and 336 elementary reactions. Flame speeds were calculated and compared with those from full mechanisms and experiments of other researchers. Flame temperature, the heat release rate, the concentration profiles of major species and radicals were also calculated with both mechanism. Those comparisons are in good agreement between the full mechanism and the short mechanism at high pressure condition. In numerical work the running time with the short mechanism was over 12 times faster than one with the full mechanism.
