A general model based on the concept of reactions in a continuum has been developed to simulate the kinetics of coal liquefaction reactions. The model has good predictive capability with very few parameters. The model has been tested with data using Victorian brown coal and also Wandoan and Taroom coals as well as published data on certain coals from North America. The model allowed a fundamental definition of reaction severity index effectively coupling the time-temperature effects of these reactions.
