Abstract

13C NMR spectroscopy was applied in the investigation of the structure of the organic matter in oil shales. By using Proton Enhanced Nuclear Induction Spectroscopy, a fair resolution of aliphatic and aromatic carbon signals was achieved. This method provided information on the relative ratio of aliphatic and aromatic carbons within a given set of samples (Aleksinac, Kimmeridge, Colorado, Australian torbanite and Estonian kukersite).
