Benzene, diethyl ether, ethanol, n-hexane, dimethyl ketone and water were used as solvents at liquefaction of kerogen-70.
Besides, diethyl ether, n-hexane and dimethyl ketone are volatile at room temperature already.
The data in Table 3 indicate that the solubility of liquid products in the solvents used at their formation during thermosolvolytical liquefaction is uncomplete varying between 12.2-77.6%, being lowest for water and highest for dimethyl ketone. The similar regularities can be observed in Table 1.
