Abstract The molecular knowledge of nitrogen compounds in diesel feedstocks has become a key issue in the development of hydrotreatment processes, especially for ultra-low sulfur diesel production. Indeed, nitrogen species have a strong impact on the hydrodesulfurization (HDS) pathway, since basic nitrogen is known to poison acidic sites of HDS catalysts. Since conventional methods only allow a poor degree of information, the increased separation power of comprehensive two-dimensional gas… CONTINUE READING
