3293.     ---------------.  [STORCH, H. H.]  Liquid Fuels From Coal and Oil Shales.  Advances Chem. Ser. No. 5, 1951, pp. 138-150; Chem. Abs., vol. 45, 1951, p. 10,558.

        Desirability of long-range development work on synthetic liquid fuel processes is discussed.  The basic chemical and engineering problems involved in coal gasification, coal hydrogenation, hydrogenation of CO, retorting of oil shale, and refining of shale oil are presented.  Brief mention is made of recent laboratory experiments in hydrocarbonization of coal in a fluidized bed at H2 pressures of 1,000 p.s.i. or less.  37 refs.
