Abstract

New analytical methods were developed for the analysis of shale oil. They included two for the complete chemical class separation of shale oil, one for the resolution of 1-6 ring aromatic hydrocarbons and one for the quantitation of nitriles by infrared spectrophotometry (IR).

The fractions collected comprised alkanes, alkenes, n-alkadienes, n-alkylmonoaromatics,
