Languages of publication
Two-temperature electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) measurements, applied to determine the relative contributions of paramagnetic centers – fulfilling and not-fulfilling the Curie law, were carried out. The measurements were made on the macerals – exinite and vitrinite, separated from clarain of the Polish medium-rank coal (85.6 wt% C). The two-temperature EPR measurements, presented in this work, were performed respectively, at temperatures: T1 = 293 K and T2 = 173 K for exinite, and T1 = 293 K and T2 = 153 K for vitrinite. The relative contributions X of spins not-fulfilling the Curie law present in the studied macerals were calculated. A comparison of different methods of calculating the relative contributions of paramagnetic centers – fulfilling and not-fulfilling the Curie law, present in exinite and vitrinite studied by EPR was made.
