Sulfur Compound Extraction

The sulfur content of fossil fuels results from the sulfur in the ancient organisms as well as from subsequent incorporation of mineral sulfur into the hydrocarbon matrix. Gaseous fossil fuels are often contaminated with hydrogen sulfide, which is an increasingly important source of sulfur. Organic derivatives containing the CSC linkage are primarily responsible for the sulfur content of petroleum and coal. The so-called organic sulfur in petroleum can be removed by hydrodesulfurization catalysis, involving reaction with hydrogen over a molybdenum catalyst, to give hydrocarbons and hydrogen sulfide.
