Here, we use some of the parameters previously reported by Poveda and Molina Energy Fuels, 25 4 The calculated number of carbons was. The first model proposal consists of a unique condensed aromatic system and saturated rings substituted with alkyl chains; whereas the second model proposal consists of several and small aromatic rings forming a structure like a group of islands linked by bridges of aliphatic chains.

Molecular changes in asphaltenes with H2 plasma. We d6650 not found reports on the molecular characterization of asphaltenes obtained from Colombian light crude oils.

D├ętail produit – EN – Normalab

The asphaltene sample was reduced to a fine powder and then pressed to obtain a pellet of 4 mm in diameter. Geofluids, 1 1 The best experimental conditions were selected by comparing the spectra at different laser intensities and ionization regions in the sample. Asphaltenes obtained from light crudes have proven to differ from those obtained from heavy crude oils.


Energy Fuels, 21 5 Evidence for island structures as the dominant architecture of asphaltenes. English pdf Article in xml format Article references How to cite this article Automatic translation Send this article by e-mail.

Finally, the crystallite parameters of nanoaggregates of CCO asphaltenes in solid phase were calculated using X-ray powder diffraction data. In this region the solvent signal appears, namely, CDC1 3 7.

Effect of the chemical structure of amphiphiles on asphaltene stabilization.

The FTIR analysis usually considers two alternatives: From FTIR data, we observe that the average length of the aliphatic chains is shorter than the average length of the aliphatic chains observed in other asphaltenes. Macrostructures of the asphaltic fractions by various instrumental methods.


Accurate determination of G and D intensities is therefore required. The area of different regions in the spectrum shows differences when compared to those calculated from the liquid state spectrum, see Table 6.

The Yen model has been very useful, particularly for considering bulk properties of phase-separated asphaltenes. This can be attributed to the number and type of reference compounds used to predict the relationship between signal intensities and the theoretical values of the methylene to methyl ratio.

Lin-Tech: Asphaltenes Extraction

From our point of view this cannot be understood strictly based on the numerical results, but explained on the basis of the presence of highly condensed aromatic molecules, as in the case of pyrene C 16 H However, additional parameters can be sstm by some of the set of parameters reported in the literature Podgorski et al.


Mass spectrum was processed as follows: Fuel, 64 3 Energy Fuels, 19 4 By combining elemental analysis Table 1average molecular weight mass spectrometry, M nand NMR spectroscopy Tables 56and 7it was possible to gather information about aetm molecular weight of the bulk sample using some average parameters.

Aggregates of asphaltenes obtained from CCO were also characterized by X-ray diffraction. The filter paper containing the f6560 residue was transferred r6560 placed in a reflux extractor and refluxed with heptane for an extraction period of min. 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.

A, 26 The 1H-NMR spectrum was characterized by a weak signal of aromatic hydrogens, 6. Cata- and peri-condensed carbons are present when condensation nuclei are observed in the structure. Services on Demand Article. These structures were also observed in oil reservoirs with an extensive vertical offset, where gravitational effects are evident Mullins et al.
