Abstract:
This thesis describes the results of the analytical effort dealing with the products from the preliminary experimental runs using the Advanced Extruder Feeder Biomass Liquefaction Facility in the period from August 1985 to December 1986. Results of the analyses show that a low-oxygen crude wood oil could be produced over a wide range of temperatures, pressures, with or without carbon monoxide and with or without a sodium carbonate catalyst. The analytical procedures have been adapted to evaluate the crude wood oil by standard investigative procedures, including elemental analysis, nuclear magnetic resonance, infrared spectroscopy, gas chromatograph-mass spectrometry, and gas chromatography.
