The high temperature oxidation of char is of interest in a number of applications in which coal must be burned in confined spaces. The temperature of char particle burning is the product of a strongly coupled balance between particle size and physical properties, heat transfer, surface reactivity, CO/CO₂ ratio and gas phase diffusion in the surrounding boundary layer and within the particle. In addition to the effects of particle temperature on burning rate, it has major effects on ash properties and mineral matter vaporization. Measurements of the temperature of individual burning char particles have become available in recent years and have clearly demonstrated large particle-to-particle temperature variations which depend strongly on particle size and on particle composition. These studies, done with pulverized coal, can not determine the CO/CO₂ ratio produced at the char surface or the catalytic effects of mineral matter in the individual char particles. Consequently, it has generally been assumed that CO is the only product of the carbon-oxygen reaction and that CO₂ is formed by subsequent gas phase reaction. More recent work, however, has pointed out the need to take CO₂ production into consideration in order to account for observed particle temperatures

The principal areas being looked at currently are using the fluidized bed for large particles and thermo-gravimetric analyzer (TA) for soot reactions. The fluidized bed will be used to work on the large particles. Early on, it was decided that only one particle would be examined, that it should be removable at any point in the reaction, and that a continuous CO[sub 2] analyzer be used to give better resolution in the bed. The soot particles needed to test the TA are being examined and modified to meet our needs. Since we wish to examine the evolution of the distance between graphite planes as the soot reacts, we felt that slight graphitization needed to take place in order to give good X-ray diffraction results. The corresponding TEM pictures of the soots at for the base soot and after 1500[degrees]C graphitization are shown in Figures 1 and 2. As can be seen, there as a fairly substantial amount of graphitization by 1500[degrees]C, as expected from Busek's work
