Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy Because asphaltenes are a complex mixture, the NMR spectra of asphaltenes do not show a pattern like the pattern obtained for pure samples.

In the regions from 6. However, despite the low content of asphaltenes severe obstruction problems take place, including the plugging of pipelines associated with asphalteneparaffins co-precipitation. FT-IR measurements of petroleum fluid inclusions: In most cases it is observed that plugging problems on the deposits formed contain both asphaltenes and paraffins. In Chemistry, Universidad Industrial de Santander e-mail: Based on this analysis, is not possible to compare solid state NMR data with liquid state NMR data in the current experimental conditions.

Based on the number of aromatic carbons, it is possible to argue the number of rings present per aromatic layer. Method to evaluate benzonaphthenic c6560 and donatable hydrogens in fossil fuels.

The molecular structure of asphaltene: So, we can obtain a new average number of carbons per alkylic chain, where n is.

Asphaltenes Apparatus

The spectrum was recorded using 5mm and 10mm probes for 1 H- and 13 C-NMR, respectively, with a spinning rate of 10 Hz and temperature of This paper provides a brief description of the procedure. Nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometry of petroleum fractions.

Raman Spectroscopy The asphaltene sample was reduced to a fine powder and then pressed to obtain a pellet of 4 mm in diameter. These results have been interpreted according to the analytical method used and there are basically two options: Spectra from shots of the laser were added to obtain the final TOF spectrum. But by taking account data from Raman analysis, the average diameter of aromatic unit The hydrogen ratio for methyl and methylene groups can be calculated directly from signals at and cm -1 assigned to hydrogen atoms on CH 2 and CH 3 groups, respectively.


Fuel, 64 3 Nevertheless, at the time the Yen model was proposed, there were many uncertainties in asphaltene molecular weight, architecture, and colloidal structure. Once the single sample was stored in the dark, it was filtered using a filter funnel with Whatman paper grade 42 and mm diameter.

The mass spectrometer was operated in the reflectrom mode, scale was calibrated prior to measurement with a standard of appropriate molecular mass. Also, we can analyze the case when a condensation nucleus is present. 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. However, the parameter L a so evaluated would be jeopardized if the integrated G and D1 intensities are not accurately determined, or if the G is not in the right range i.

Cata- and peri-condensed carbons are present when condensation nuclei are observed in the structure.

Here, we use different data derived from elemental analysis, spectroscopic techniques as Infrared, Raman, and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, Mass Spectrometry and X-ray diffraction. The formation of analyte molecular radical cations vs protonated molecules depends on the type of matrix ions present, as well as the thermodynamic and kinetic properties of the reactants and products McCarley et al, Characterization of vacuum residuals and their substitution by using FT-IR techniques.

They may give problems during storage and handling if the suspension of asphaltene molecules is disturbed through excess stress or incompatibility.

Study of structural parameters on some petroleum aromatic fractions by 1H n. Molecular changes in asphaltenes with H2 plasma. The liquid was decanted into the filter paper, and the residue in the flask was then transferred as completely as possible with successive quantities of hot heptane, using the stirring rod as necessary.


Accurate determination of G and D intensities is therefore required. The most commonly observed absorption bands in crude oils and their fractions are reported in Table 2.


From 1 H-NMR spectrum the number of hydrogens in saturates was Only the spectral range from to cm -1 mid-IR was used in this study. Measured diffraction pattern is shown in Figure 6. 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.

The Raman spectrum was acquired in a backscattering configuration with a x long work distance objective used to focus the laser and collect scattered light. Thirty-degree pulses Bruker zg30 pulse sequence were used, obtaining a delay time of 2 s sweep width Hz data points.

The asphaltenes were transferred to a flask by refluxing with toluene until all the asphaltenes dissolved from the paper. From data of integrated areas of the aromatic ppm and alkyl 3. Average molecular parameters of heavy crude oils and their fractions using NMR spectroscopy.

In infrared spectra at cm -1a splitting of the methylene “wag” peak is observed in asphaltene samples, indicating formation of ordered crystals with long alkyl chains. In Tables 56 and 7it was possible to observe astmm some regions in the NMR spectra give the relative amount of structural groups and by combining them it was possible to collect further information on average molecular parameters.
