Energy Fuels, 18 4 Two options can be considered; the first one relates to aromatic unit type acene compounds. To calculate the ratio of methyl to methylene groups, we employ Equations 3 to 6. Once the single sample was stored in the dark, it was filtered using a filter funnel with Whatman paper grade 42 and mm diameter. Integrated areas are proportional to the relative amount of the chemical groups in the sample. Critical nanoaggregate concentration of asphaltenes by Direct-Current DC electrical conductivity.

Energy Fuels, 25 4 In the regions from 6.


Fuel, 59 5 It is therefore important not only getting samples free of paraffin, but also their molecular characterization in order to understand the phenomena associated with asphaltene-paraffins interaction and co-precipitation thereof. Macrostructures of the asphaltic fractions by various instrumental satm. By combining elemental analysis Table 1average molecular weight mass spectrometry, M nand NMR spectroscopy Tables 56and 7it was possible to gather information about the molecular weight of the bulk sample using some average parameters.



Symposium on composition of petroleum oil, determination and evaluation. The main problem observed with the procedures to astmm the average molecular parameters reported in the literature had to do with their development and the approaches taken into account for the structural analysis, thus, it is paramount to consider also the chemical nature of samples that can be analyzed using each one of them.

The analysis of the average molecular parameters should be done in conjunction with 1 H- and 13 C-NMR, given the fact that the integrated area is quantitative. There are several models and functions commonly used for curve fitting. The total number of carbons in methyl groups results considering the regions C 10 and C Here, we use different data derived from elemental analysis, spectroscopic techniques as Infrared, Raman, and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, Mass Spectrometry and X-ray diffraction.


Curve fitting of the Raman spectra is often used to extract more reliable G and D band intensities, as shown in Figure 2. The average number and weighted average of the molecular weights M n and M w of Colorado asphaltenes were calculated using Equations 1 and 2 Qian et al. From nanotubes to diamond. Energy Fuels, 27 3 c6560, Raman spectrum of asphaltene.

Lin-Tech: Asphaltenes Extraction

Method for the determination of average structural parameters of petroleum heavy ends. D6506 by taking account data from Raman analysis, the average diameter of aromatic unit Molecular recognition and molecular mechanics of micelles of some model asphaltenes and resins.


Asphaltenes, Chemical characterization, Average molecular parameters. These structures were also observed in oil reservoirs with an extensive vertical offset, where gravitational effects are evident Mullins et al.

The colloidal structure of crude oils and the structure of oil reservoirs. A, 50 In this case the central ring requires six carbons aetm four carbons for the second ring, additional ring increases ast number by 3. There, the deconvolution of the diffraction pattern shows the different bands obtained from the reflections of the ordered subunits in the asphaltenes.

Fuel, 83 13 Energy Fuels, 21 5 A Colorado crude oil sample was mixed with n-heptane at a mass ratio of 1: X-ray diffraction measurements were made from finely ground powders of asphaltenes using a Bruker D8 Advance automated diffractometer. By using computational methods with molecular dynamics models, it is possible to study asphaltene-asphaltene and asphaltene-resin interactions, and the way they interact with solvents.

Aastm analysis of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons derived from petroleum and coal by 13 C and 1 H-n. Atsm Fuels, 14 3 Evidence for island structures as the dominant architecture of asphaltenes. A, 26 Fuel, 57 11 Geofluids, 1 1 Fuel, 64 3
