The Reaction of Carbon-14-Labeled Reagents with Coal
The reasons for carrying out the research presented here were threefold: 1) to allow carbon-14-labeled reagents to react with coal and with coal-derived materials at low temperatures and thus to estimate a) the reagents1 value in determining which functions are present in the original coal or b) have been added or removed during coal reactions; 2) to allow carbon-14-labeled compounds (containing structures similar to those known to be present in coal) to react with coal at or above 400°, then to determine the fates of these compounds using the carbon-14 as a tracer. In this way it was hoped conclusions could be drawn as to how the same kind of moiety behaves in the coal structure; and 3) to elucidate the mechanisms of the thermal reactions of the above-mentioned labeled compounds with coal.
