FT-Raman Spectroscopic Study of Indian Bituminous and Sub-bitumionus Coal

B. Manoj and A.G. Kunjomana

In this study, Raman spectra in the 400 to 1800 cm-1 region were obtained for two different coal samples. The bands observed at 601 and 569 cm-1 were attributed to presence of Halloysite which was shifted to lower wave number with leaching. Intense bands observed at 569-640 cm-1 could also correspond to ring breathing vibration. Band due to Si-O perpendicular vibration is observed at 1090 cm-1 and is disappeared with HF leaching. The graphite band (1580 cm-1) and the defect band (1350 cm-1) were observed in the sample. Intensity of graphite band (G) was stronger in bituminous coal than sub-bituminous coal, where as the defect band was stronger in sub-bituminous coal with leaching. Presence of D-band was an indication of condensed Benzene rings in amorphous carbon and was comparatively stronger in sub-bituminous coal. Carbonyl bands were stronger in sub-bituminous coal than bituminous coal. The relatively strong band near 1695 cm-1 was attributed to carboxylic acid and relatively weak band at 1670 cm-1 was assigned to ketonic structures. Sub-bituminous coal sample was showing moderately higher absorption than bituminous coal. Samples having higher oxygen content had intense absorption band of carbonyl group compared to samples having lower oxygen content.
