Studying the structural chemistry of coal

Studying the structural chemistry of coal



Author: Robert M Davidson

This Chapter is intended to provide an update of Molecular structure of coal (Davidson, 1980). Since 1980 there have been other reviews of the topic including those by Wender and others (1981), Green and others (1982), Gorbaty and others (1986), Derbyshire (1991), Haenel (1992), Gorbaty (1994), and Marzec (2002). In 1981, a reprint of van Krevelen’s book, Coal – Typology – Chemistry – Physics – Constitution was published, with a preface that stated that no attempts to make the book ‘up-to-date’ had been made to this classic text. Nevertheless, in 1993, a third, completely revised edition appeared, since the ‘amazing extension’ of the instrumental techniques of observation and analysis necessitated a total revision and updating.
