The chemical structure models for the extractions and residues of two types of bituminous coals, A and B, were constructed. The molecular weights of the extractions were determined via gel permeation chromatography (GPC). New standard materials with structures similar to those of coal extraction (i.e., 9, 10diphenylanthracene, 5,6,11,12-tetraphenylnaphthracene, and chemical compounds A (Mw = 811) and B (Mw = 1 135), which were synthesized using the coupling reaction) were adopted for GPC in

Furthermore, a support program for constructing chemical structure models based on 1 H nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectra was adopted. The coal models constructed suitably indicate the differences between the types of coal. In particular, it is found that a high pyridine-insoluble fraction extracted rate, which accounts for the most significant difference between the total extracted rates for coals A and B, enhance the coking property of coal A. In addition, the cluster size in the magic solvent-insoluble fraction might affect the softening property of coal.
