English term or phrase: alkyl nitrates and nitrites
El texto describe ensayos de calidad para combustibles de motores diesel. Contexto:

"Additives may be used to improve diesel fuel performance. Cetane improvers such as **alkyl nitrates and nitrites** can improve ignition quality."

Quisiera confirmar si los "nitritos" también son "alquílicos" y cuál sería la denominación correcta de estas sustancias en castellano (Argentina).

Muchas gracias.
