Raman Spectroscopy of Oil Shale

Event Date: June 11, 2013 at 8:00 AM PDT / 11:00 AM EDT

This webinar will cover the application of Raman spectroscopy for the characterization of oil shale, particularly black shale, which consists of kerogen (fossilized organic matter) trapped in sedimentary rock consisting of clays, calcites, silicates, and titanium dioxides among other inorganic minerals. We show that Raman spectroscopy is useful for characterizing the varieties of kerogen structure (chemical bonding and solid state), differentiating shales with different relative amounts of kerogen to inorganic mineral, and differentiating polymorphs of naturally occurring inorganic oxides, including shale, kerogen, oil, and calcite.
