Asphaltenes Extraction

The infrared spectra of complex d5660. Their composition normally includes a disproportionately high quantity of the sulfur, nitrogen, and metals present in the crude petroleum or petroleum product. Probing the effect of thermal treatment of d6650 oils. By combining elemental analysis Table 1average molecular weight mass spectrometry, M nand NMR spectroscopy Tables 56and 7it was possible to gather information about the molecular weight of the bulk sample using some average parameters.

Stabilization of asphaltenes in aliphatic solvents using alkylbenzene-derived amphipbiles. Energy Fuels, 24 4 Additionally, we could observe that two reflections at Nevertheless, at the time the Yen model was proposed, there were many uncertainties in asphaltene molecular weight, architecture, and colloidal structure. This result indicates that the nature of asphaltenes changes according to the molecular characteristics of crude oil.

A solid-state laser at nm was used as the excitation source, and the typical laser power at the sample position was The spectrum of 1H-NMR shows the paraffinic nature of the sample, and the signals should be analyzed on the basis of the composition of paraffinic and naphthenic saturated groups in the sample of Colorado asphaltenes.

The FTIR analysis usually considers two alternatives: So, we can obtain a new average number of carbons per alkylic chain, where n is. The spectrum was acquired using MAS conditions with a rotation rate of Hz and using one-pulse sequence without cross polarization to obtain a quantitative spectrum.

How to cite this article. Symposium on composition of petroleum oil, determination and evaluation. The n calculated value was 5. Effect of the chemical structure of amphiphiles on asphaltene stabilization. Some of the molecular parameters were obtained directly from quantitative data of the 1 H- and 13 C-NMR spectra, where the integrated signals are a representation of the amount of chemical groups in the sample.

The modified Yen model. In most axtm it is observed that plugging problems on the deposits formed contain both asphaltenes and paraffins. Asphaltenes, Chemical characterization, Average molecular parameters.

Services on Demand Article. Energy Fuels, 28 10 Given that this paper is focused on evaluating the molecular or the aggregate structure of asphaltene, equation 8 was the sole equation used for wstm L a.

Normally, paraffinic crude oils have small amounts of asphaltenes exceeding in one or two percent in a few cases. The colloidal structure of crude oils and the structure of oil reservoirs. Based on this analysis, is not possible to compare solid state NMR data with liquid state NMR data in the current experimental conditions. From 1 H-NMR spectrum the number of hydrogens in saturates was The elucidation of the chemical structure of all their molecules is a very complex and yet unfinished task. By comparing n values reported in Table 7we can argue that saturated chains are characterized by a little or no chain branching.

Table 7 summarizes the calculated average molecular parameters for samples of Colorado asphaltenes.

These results have been interpreted according to the analytical method used and there are basically two options: The filter paper containing the asphaltene residue was transferred and placed in a reflux extractor and refluxed with heptane for an extraction period of min.

Application of d660 13C nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy to coal-derived materials. Fuel, 59 5 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. Finally, the sum was extended over all peaks found in the spectrum using the peak picking procedure implemented in the mMass software Strohalm et al, ; Strohalm et al, Based on the number of aromatic carbons, it is possible to argue the number of rings present per aromatic layer.


It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Fuel, 90 7 Investigation of the structure of petroleum asphaltenes by X-ray Effraction.

From data of integrated areas of the aromatic ppm and alkyl 3. The region where aromatic carbons appear can be subdivided into three regions, from The liquid was decanted into the filter paper, and the residue in the flask was then transferred as completely as possible with successive quantities of hot heptane, using the stirring rod as necessary.

The area of different regions in the spectrum shows differences when compared to those calculated from the liquid state spectrum, see Table 6.

The average diameters of aromatic layers L 0 calculated from XRD and Raman were compared together and proved to be in good agreement.

Lin-Tech: Asphaltenes Extraction

Symposium on advances in analysis of petroleum and its products, Preprints 4,17 1 We have not found reports on the molecular characterization of asphaltenes obtained from Colombian light crude oils. There are several models and functions commonly used for curve fitting. Based on the previous studies, a new asphaltene model has been codified in the “modified Yen model” and stipulates the dominant structure of asphaltene molecules, nanoaggregates and their clusters Mullins,
