Elemental Analysis of Fuels and Lubricants: Recent Advances and Future Prospects

Editor(s): R. A. Kishore Nadkarni

Twenty-three peer-reviewed papers examine the latest information on the elemental analysis of fuels and lubricants. Six sections cover:

Overview—discusses total quality management practices advocated for obtaining a "perfect" analysis, including proper staff training, sampling, calibration and quality control practices.

Atomic Spectroscopy—focuses on various aspects of inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry (ICP-AES), mass spectrometry, and isotope dilution mass spectrometry.

X-Ray Spectroscopy—deals with X-ray fluorescence (XRF), including the determination of sulfur in gasoline and diesel, high-power and low-power wavelength dispersive x-ray fluorescence (WDXRFs), and bench top energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF).

Sulfur Analysis—examines the analyses of low levels of sulfur in petroleum products, particularly gasoline, reformulated gasoline, and diesel; and applications of on-line technology for sulfur determination in fuels.

Mercury Determination—addresses concerns regarding the mercury content of crude oils and its emission through the petroleum refining process.

Other Heteroatoms—discusses the use of atomic emission detection using gas chromatography (AED-GS) to determine elements such as carbon, nitrogen, etc., and much more.
