- Chemists can now be picky about organosulfur compounds | Chemical …
When hearing someone describe the typical preparation of organosulfur compounds, it’s clear the approach is not a very sustainable one. Mixtures of sulfur compounds naturally in crude oil are first treated with hydrogen in a catalytic refinery process to remove the sulfur—the goal is to pull out as much sulfur as possible to create cleaner transportation fuels.
- History of the petroleum industry – Wikipedia
The petroleum industry is not of recent origin, but petroleum’s current status as the key component of politics, society, and technology has its roots in the early 20th century. The invention of the internal combustion engine was the major influence in the rise in the importance of petroleum.
