    Direct Coal Liquefaction The Coal Guy

    Direct Liquefaction The First Step The first step in direct liquefaction is probably the thermal breaking (≥350 °C)of chemical bonds in the coal macromolecule R—R' →R + R' The weakest bonds probably break first; likely these are bonds between aromatic ring systems. The products are radicals.
