Abstract
This paper summarizes a systematic 20-year study of the organic sulfur compounds of Wasson, Texas, crude oil and, to a lesser extent, of three other crude oils. This study has culminated in the identification of some 200 individual sulfur compounds. The Bureau of Mines has developed and applied separation and identification techniques which should be generally suitable for the characterization of sulfur compounds in any crude oil. This paper cites much of the early sulfur literature that covers individual sulfur compound identifications completed before this study and some 20 project papers that resulted from this work. The sulfur compounds in petroleum have long been of concern to the petroleum industry, and such compositional data should be of both theoretical and practical value.
