Role of minerals in thermal alteration of organic matter--II: a material balance.

Am Assoc Pet Geol Bull 1986 Sep;70(9):1156-65

Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics, University of California at Los Angeles 90024, USA.

Pyrolysis experiments were performed on Green River and Monterey Formation kerogens (Types I and II, respectively) with and without calcite, illite, or montmorillonite at 300 degrees C for 2 to 1,000 hours under dry and hydrous conditions. Pyrolysis products were identified and quantified, and a material balance of product and reactants resulted. Significant differences were found in the products generated by pyrolysis of kerogens with and without minerals. Read More
