Abstract

The overall aim of our recent investigations has been to obtain a more complete understanding of the mechanisms for the principal reactions which occur during the catalysed hydroliquefaction of low rank coals. Brown coal structure is described by a guest-host model. A mechanism is proposed for the hydroliquefaction process which emphasizes the role of catalysts inhibiting repolymerisation reactions, especially for the host component, the significance of interconvertibility of coal-derived products and the importance of hydrogen donation from molecular hydrogen and from the vehicle tetralin.
