The aim of the study on the title subject is to give an indication of howto apply the equipment at the Netherlands Energy Research Foundation effectively in the gasification research projects. Differences between scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and light microscopy (LM) are outlined for high-temperature conversion processes. Interpretation of changes in the structure and composition of coal and its mineral components can give valuable indications of processes in the reactor. In general, SEM Energy Dispersive X-ray analysis (SEM-EDX) can provide an elementary analysis of mineral components, while LM is more appropriate for the study of fine structures of the organic matrix. 16 refs.
