Entirely in accord with this conclusion is that to be drawn from the work of Professor Bedson, who found that while an electric current of 12.05 amperes would, by heating a resistance wire, ignite 1 gram of fine (100-mesh) fresh coal dust, it required a...
Page 49 - I believe, to concentration as the result of devolatilization and reduction of the coal by the dynamochemical process, the larger part of the concentration being the result of loss of oxygen, which is in larger proportion at the outset. The oxygen loss is disproportionally great as compared to that of the hydrogen. The liquid putrefaction products of the algae must almost certainly have entered into the groundmass of the coal and participated in the infiltration of the immersed structural vestiges...
