Ligand Assisted Desulfurization of Lignite Using the Perchloroethylene Coal Refining Process
The perchloroethylene coal refining process was used on North Dakota lignite coal. Effects of extraction time, perchloroethylenexoal ratio and artificial weathering were studied to determine their effects on the removal of organic sulfur. The artificial weathering conditions used were found to be too harsh and caused a decrease in the amount of organic sulfur removed, unlike normal weathering conditions. Additional studies were done involving various ligands, and showed that the addition of certain ligands during the process aided in the extraction of organic sulfur from the coal.
