This project studies swelling of coals by solvents with application to coal liquefaction. Solvent swelling offers a measure of how well the insoluble 3-D network structure of coal has been disrupted. Preliquefaction swelling of coals can also be a valuable processing step: it may be used to introduce catalysts into the structure, or merely to loosen the structure so that donor solvent entry is promoted or retrograde reactions are inhibited. A class of solvents was investigated for introducing… CONTINUE READING
