Tetrachloroethylene ve Peroksiasetik Asit ile Klasik ve Mikrodalga Enerji Kullanarak Kömürlerden Organik Desülfürizasyon


The most important forms of sulfur in coal are sulphides called pyridic sulfur and organic sulphides which are molecularly linked to coal. Pyritic sulfur can be removed from coal with enough liberation. Organic sulfur is molecularly linked to coal. So it is very difficult to remove. In this study, the removal of organic sulfur was investigated by breaking the C-S bonds with tetrachloroethylene (C2Cl4) and peroxyacetic acid (C2H4O3). Also, classical and microwave heating was used in organic sulfur removal experiments to determine which heating technique is more advantageous. Çanakkale/Çan coals with a total sulfur content of 4.77% were used. With the sulfur removal rate (KUO) of 75.94%, the total sulfur content was reduced to 1.15%. The organic sulfur removal rate (OKUO) in the final product was calculated as 86.10%. this product contains 0.51% organic sulfur. In addition, it has been determined that microwave heating removes more sulfur in a very short time compared to classical heating method.
