Title: The chemistry of coal

Abstract

A major section of the book summarizes the fundamental chemistry and chemical engineering aspects of coal conversion, i.e., combustion, carbonization, gasification and liquefaction of coal; and one chapter deals with the environmental problems posed by coal operations and with current pollution abatement techniques. A final chapter examines whether coal can, in fact, be thought of as possessing a unique, rank-dependent molecular structure, and whether 'average structure models' hold any practical significance for technically intelligent use of coal.
