An analytical procedure developed by the Bureau of Mines was applied to the separation and characterization of a 370 deg to 535 deg c distillate from Swan Hills (south field), Alberta, Canada, crude oil. Investigators determined the general characteristics of the crude oil by the Bureau's routine method for crude oil analysis. Suitable fractions were prepared for instrumental analyses by utilizing such techniques as isothermal and molecular distillations, chemical treatement, silica-alumina gel chromatography, and gel permeation chromatography (gpc). A detailed characterization of the 370 deg to 535 deg c distillate was possible by the application of gpc-mass spectrometry correlations and nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometry. Semiquantitative data based on mass z series distributions were determined and are shown. The data will be valuable in developing future processing techniques and in calculating yields for converting high-boiling distillates into more useful energy forms.
