Abstract

The vigor in the development of molecule-based reaction models for petroleum feedstocks is a result of two broad forces. First, being based at the molecular level and therefore embracing fundamental physical-organic chemistry, molecular reaction models are reasonably anticipated to provide better predictions and allow for extrapolation. Second, new questions of unprecedented molecular detail are being asked of models. The Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 ensure that concentrations of both molecular groups and individual species will be relevant issues in future refinery operations.
