Micropaleontology (1964) 10 (4): 486-490.
...Howard W. Lee Abstract Selection and proper execution of the best-suited maceration method are key factors in palynological studies. Household bleach, HNO 3 , and KOH used in successive steps, with application of moderate heat and vigorous agitation during each step, successfully macerate some...

... Analyses of modern Indonesian peat samples reveal that the optical characteristics of peat constituents are consistent with the characteristics of macerals observed in brown coal and, as found by previous workers, brown-coal maceral terminology can be used in the analysis of modern peat. A core...
... subsidence with early burial of peat beds is indicated for Sydney basin, by type of clastics and excellent preservation of coal macerals. In the Pictou coalfield, micro-banded hypautochthonous coals accumulated in a narrow intermontane lake basin. A lithofacies map shows lacustrine sediments, with coal...

...Donald D. Hickmott; W. S. Baldridge Abstract Proton-induced X-ray emission (PIXE) microanalysis is shown to be capable of semiquantitative to quantitative standardless determination of trace element abundances in coal macerals and sulfides using an internal normalization protocol. PIXE spectra...

...M. M. Roy Abstract Chromatographic, infrared, and other analytic data for vitrinite, fusinite, and exinite concentrates from samples of abnormally high-sulfur Tertiary coals of Assam (India) are presented and compared with similar data for normal (coking) coals from the Jharia field. GeoRef...

... is thought to be due to preferential preservation of the unique exocuticle of scorpions; it alone is preserved and appears to retain an organic nature. The cuticle is recovered from all the lithotypes of humic bituminous coals although it is most common in coals rich in inertinite macerals. From the present...

...M. M. Roy Abstract Coal macerals were exposed to blown air at a temperature of 175 degrees C for different periods of time up to 500 hours. In vitrinite and exinite, the drop in percentage of carbon and hydrogen increases up to 300 hours, but in fusinite the drop is negligible. GeoRef, Copyright...

The strong correlation between platinum and iron and low-temperature ash suggest that platinum may be absorbed and retained as similar colloidal inorganic compounds. The inverse correlation between gold and platinum...

... from coal macerations and thin sections in 1913. The Pollen Analysis Circular brought workers with dual interests in Holocene and ancient spore/pollen analyses into contact in the 1940s and generated interest in older fossils. Two umbrella organizations—the Paleobotanical Section of the Botanical...

.... Her contributions on the earliest angiosperms, on the formation of coal-balls, and, above all, on the nature and terminology of coal macerals have had a lasting impact on palaeobotanical thought.

...M. M. Roy Abstract "The I. R. spectra of macerals show that the general nature of the spectra are more or less similar in higher rank coals and somewhat different in the lower ranks. Presence of H-bonded (OH), H-bonded (C=O) or polycyclic extended quinones are prominent with vitrinites. Exinites...

... and the higher the MC of the coal. Furthermore, because pores in a coal are void space filled with either water or gas and the density of either water or gas is significantly smaller than that of either macerals or minerals, the larger the porosity, the smaller the density of the coal. Thus, the same reasoning...
