Structure in Paleozoic Bituminous Coals

Description: From Introduction: "To fill in a few of these gaps and to clarify some of the existing confusion is the aim of this paper. The immediate cause that led the author to investigate further the composition of coal and the origin and structure of its constituents was that when an attempt was made to discover the meaning of the coking and noncoking properties of a coal a more exact knowledge of the nature of the coal was required than was then available."
