Exciting opportunities exist for the application of supercritical fluid (SCF) reactions for the pre-treatment of coal. Utilizing reactants which resemble the organic nitrogen containing components of coal, we propose to develop a method to tailor chemical reactions in supercritical fluid solvents for the specific application of coal denitrogenation. The Diels -Alder reaction of anthracene and 4-phenyl-ly2,4-triazoline-3,5-dione (PTAD) was chosen as the model system and was investigated in
