F SC 431 The Chemistry of Fuels (3)
The course deals with the formation, composition and properties of the principal naturally occurring fossil hydrocarbons (coal, petroleum, natural gas), and their refining, upgrading, and conversion chemistry. The objectives of this course are to equip students with a fundamental knowledge of the chemistry for the fossil hydrocarbon resources and their energy use for transportation and stationary fuels as well as their use as chemical feedstocks. It also helps to prepare students for the challenges, opportunities, and changes in the world of energy and resource-related enterprises. The primary emphasis is on petroleum, natural gas, coal, and liquid transportation fuels. This is a required course for the Energy Engineering Major.
