Elemental analysis of asphaltenes from different crude oils reveals that some of its elements may vary over a wide range.

The integrated areas of signals at the frequencies Also, we can analyze the case when a condensation nucleus is present. The spectrum was recorded using 5mm and 10mm probes for 1 H- and 13 C-NMR, respectively, with a spinning rate of 10 Hz and temperature of The CCO is a paraffinic crude oil with a lower content of asphaltenes, approximately 0.

Therefore the sample was subject to extensive washing with heptane up to one hundred hours. The total number of saturated carbons was calculated from the integrated regions between 3.

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.

Energy Fuels, 25 4 Fuel, 83 13 Cata- and peri-condensed carbons are present when condensation nuclei are observed in the structure.


Method for the determination of average structural parameters of petroleum heavy ends. The three peak data were used for our analysis, Figure 2. An structural explanation to this is the presence of ramifications in the saturated chains. Average molecular parameters of asmt crude oils and their fractions using NMR spectroscopy.

Asphaltenes molecular size and structure. A solid-state laser at nm zstm used as the excitation source, and the typical laser power at the sample position was Here, we use some of the parameters previously reported by Poveda and Molina A, 26 Sixteen scans were averaged for the spectrum.

Results are reported in Table 3. Energy Fuels, 10 1 The mass spectrometer was operated in the reflectrom mode, scale was calibrated prior to measurement with a standard of appropriate molecular mass. Structural analysis of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons derived from petroleum and coal by 13 C and 1 H-n. Partial deconvolution can be applied to facilitate the determination of intensities of ashm from asphaltene FTIR spectra where signals cannot be differentiated.

The asm number of carbons was. Some reports using FTIR data intend to obtain quantitative information about the structure of samples. Carbon and proton nuclear magnetic resonance characterizations in terms of average molecule parameters.

A single molecular model is not sufficient to represent all the molecules present in a sample of asphaltenes. NMR spectra are divided into regions, with each region being assigned to a chemical group in the sample.

The main chemical groups present astmm asphaltenes and the spectral ranges where they appear in 1 H- and 13 C-NMR spectra are shown in Tables 5 and 6respectively.

Asphaltenes Extraction

X-ray diffraction measurements were made from finely ground powders of ast, using a Bruker D8 Advance automated diffractometer. In contrast, values calculated using Equations 4 and 5are different. Electron paramagnetic resonance study of rotational mobility of vanadyl porphyrin complexes in crude oil asphaltenes: Eds Asphaltenes, heavy oils, and petroleomics.

Energy Fuels, 27 3 From our point of view this cannot be understood strictly based on the numerical results, but explained on the basis of the presence of highly condensed aromatic molecules, as in the case of pyrene C 16 H The region where d6506 alkyl hydrogens appear 0.


From data of integrated areas of the aromatic ppm and alkyl 3.

The average number and weighted average of the molecular weights M n and M w of Colorado asphaltenes were calculated using Equations 1 and 2 Qian et al. The formation of analyte molecular radical cations vs protonated molecules atm on the type of matrix ions present, as well as the thermodynamic and kinetic properties of the reactants and products McCarley et al, Adtm most commonly observed absorption bands in crude oils and their fractions are reported in Table 2.

Molecular composition and dynamics of oils from diffusion measurements.

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy Because asphaltenes are a complex mixture, the NMR spectra of asphaltenes do not show a pattern like the pattern obtained for pure samples. Based on the Raman data, the diameter of the aromatic layer in asphaltenes was calculated as In Chemistry, Universidad Industrial de Santander e-mail: Normally, paraffinic crude oils have small amounts of asphaltenes exceeding in one or two percent in a few cases.

Table 7 summarizes the calculated average molecular parameters for samples of Colorado asphaltenes. Given that this paper is focused on evaluating the molecular or the aggregate structure of asphaltene, equation 8 was the sole equation used for estimating L a. In this work, we present dd6560 results of the chemical characterization of the asphaltenes obtained from the Colorado Colombian light crude oil.
