During the past few decades, petroleum has been the main source of liquid fuels. On one hand petroleum reserves are declining, and on the other hand coal reserve is the most abundant fossil fuel known in the world. Liquefaction aims to convert solid coal into liquid fuels. Coal can be converted...
The stability of the ether bond affects coal dissolution during direct coal liquefaction and aliphatic ethers are reportedly the most reactive of the oxygenate classes during liquefaction. Some ether compounds are also persistent to high temperature during coal pyrolysis. The thermolysis of ether...
