|Resumo:||Three Argonne Premium coal samples, the Beulah-Zap lignite (North Dakota), the high volatile A bituminous Stockton (West Virginia), and the low volatile Pocahontas No. 3 (Virginia), were ground to three initial sizes: -20 mesh, -100 mesh, and "micronized". The samples were each subjected to liquefaction at 673 K for 30 min at a 2:1 tetralin :coal ratio and in an H 2 atmosphere at 13.79 MPa (~ 2000 psi). Polished pellets of the unconverted residues were circulated to three laboratories for a study designed to determine, albeit on a limited scale, the interlaboratory consistency in constituent identification and the problem areas in maceral/neo-maceral/mineral recognition. Within broad categories, the agreement for the Beulah-Zap and Pocahontas No. 3 residues is good. The high volatile A bituminous Stockton coal was the most plastic and most altered, resulting in a residue lending itself to more subjective interpretations. The biggest discrepancy between the laboratories is in the distinction of granular residue and mineral matter and in the transitions between "partially reacted macerals" and "vitroplast" and between "vitroplast" and "granular residue". The initial size of the feed coal appears to influence the recognition of material in the residue.|
