The application of fluorescence photometry in the maturity evaluation of dispersed organic matter

Krystyna J. Kruszewska


A long-wave relative fluorescence intensity method, which was recently developed for the determination of vitrinites in coal, was modified to measure vitrinite particles dispersed in organics rocks. These particles occur in assemblages of dispersed organic matter, consisting of various types of plant and faunal material. The method was satisfactorily modified and a first attempt to evaluate the maturity of the vitrinite in the succession of sediments in an exploratory borehole was completed.
