Bio-oils are precursors for biofuels but are highly corrosive necessitating further upgrading. Furthermore, bio-oil samples are highly complex and represent a broad range of chemistries. They are complex mixtures not simply because of the large number of poly-oxygenated compounds but because each composition can comprise many isomers with multiple...

Marine heavy fuel oils (HFOs), derived from and often blended with hydrotreated residual cuts, typically possess high boiling point, viscosity, and molecular complexity, and so are inherently challenging to analyze at the molecular level. Their high asphaltene content is associated with undesirable phenomena including flocculation, deposition, and...

High‐resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS) has become a vital tool for dissolved organic matter (DOM) characterization. The upward trend in HRMS analysis of DOM presents challenges in data comparison and interpretation among laboratories operating instruments with differing performance and user operating conditions. It is therefore essential that the...

The use of hyphenated Fourier transform mass spectrometry (FTMS) methods affords additional information about complex chemical mixtures. Co-eluted components can be resolved thanks to the ultra-high resolving power, which also allows extracted ion chromatograms (EICs) to be used for the observation of isomers. As such datasets can be large and data...
Article
In this work, a detailed analysis of a bio-oil obtained by pyrolysis of softwoods and its esterified product is described. Information of the type of chemical function groups were obtained by 13C and 1H nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) and compositional analysis was obtained by Fourier transform i...

Crude oil is among the most complex organic mixtures found in nature. Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry (FT-ICR MS) provides the resolution and mass accuracy needed to analyze such complex mixtures. When mixtures contain many different components, a competitive effect within the ICR cell takes place that hampers the detect...

Full-text available
A new strategy has been developed for characterization of the most challenging complex mixtures to date, using a combination of custom-designed experiments and a new data pre-processing algorithm. In contrast to traditional methods, the approach enables operation of Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry (FT-ICR MS) with consta...
Article
Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry affords the resolving power to determine an unprecedented number of components in complex mixtures, such as petroleum. The software tools required to also analyze these data struggle to keep pace with advancing instrument capabilities and increasing quantities of data, particularly in term...
