Recent developments in the application of thermal analysis techniques in fossil fuels

2008-03-01
In this review, application of thermal analysis techniques (differential scanning calorimetry, thermogravimetry, differential thermal analysis, etc.) for fossil fuel characterization and kinetics are reviewed between 2001 and 2006. The results presented clearly showed that thermal analysis applications are well-established techniques used in fossil fuel research area.

Kök, Mustafa Verşan (2002-01-01)
In this study, instances where thermal analysis techniques ( differential scanning calorimetry, thermogravimetry, differential thermal analysis, etc.) have been applied for fossil fuel characterisation and kinetics are reviewed. The scientific results presented clearly showed that thermal analysis is a well-established technique used in fossil fuel research area. The literature survey showed that thermal methods were important not only theoretically but also from a practical point of view.
Pyrolysis and Combustion Studies of Fossil Fuels by Thermal Analysis Methods Review
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (1995-02-01)
Instances where differential scanning calorimetry, thermogravimetry and differential thermal analysis have been applied to study the pyrolysis and combustion behaviour of fossil fuels (peat, lignite, bituminous coals, anthracite, oil shales, crude oils, lignite-oil mixtures, etc.) are reviewed. The literature survey showed that thermal methods were important not only theoretically but also from a practical point of view.
Pyrolysis analysis and kinetics of crude oils
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (1998-01-01)
This research presents the results of an experimental study on the determination of pyrolysis behaviour and kinetics of six crude oils by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and thermogravimetry (TG/DTG). Crude oil pyrolysis indicated two main temperature ranges where loss of mass was observed. The first region between ambient to 400 degrees C was distillation. The second region between 400 and 600 degrees C was visbreaking and thermal cracking. Arrhenius-type kinetic model is used to determine the kine...
An investigation into the thermal behavior of coals
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (2002-10-01)
The thermal behavior of 4 coal samples was investigated using simultaneous thermogravimetry (TG/DTG) and differential thermal analysis (DTA) methods. Upon heating the coals in an inert atmosphere up to 800degreesC, 31.44-43.82% weight loss occurs. The 2 temperature regions of increased chemical reactivity are evident in the coal samples studied Two different models determined kinetic analysis of the samples, and the results are discussed.
Comparative Pyrolysis and Combustion Kinetics of Oil Shales
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (2000-02-01)
In this research, thermal characteristics and kinetic parameters of eight Turkish oil shale samples were determined by thermogravimetry (TG/DTG) at non-isothermal heating conditions both for pyrolysis and combustion processes. A general computer program was developed and the methods are compared with regard to their accuracy and the ease of interpretation of the kinetics of thermal decomposition. Activation energies of the samples were determined by five different methods and the results are discussed.
