δ34S character of organosulfur compounds in kerogen and bitumen fractions of sedimentary rocks
MetadataShow full item record
Hydropyrolysis (HyPy) of S-containing oil mature rock samples from two geologic settings each produced much higher concentrations of organosulfur compounds (OSCs) compared to their free occurrence in the bitumen. The d 34 S values of the most abundant OSCs from the kerogen and in the bitumen, were measured by gas chromatography inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (GC-ICP-MS). DBT and mDBTs from the HyPy processed kerogen fractions showed a distinct 34 S depletion, with d 34 S values up to 12‰ lighter than their bitumen occurrence. The different d 34 S values of OSCs from the kerogen and bitumen fractions is likely reflective of differences in timing of production, reduced sulfur sources or organic sulfurisation mechanism.

Bitumen II from the Paleoproterozoic Here’s Your Chance Pb/Zn/Ag deposit: Implications for the analysis of depositional environment and thermal maturity of hydrothermally-altered sedimentsHolman, Alex; Grice, Kliti; Jaraula, Caroline; Schimmelmann, A. (2014)The formation of sedimentary exhalative (SEDEX) Pb/Zn deposits is linked to ocean euxinia, but recent evidence suggests that ferruginous conditions may have dominated the deep ocean during the Middle Proterozoic, a maximum ...
A comparison of thermal maturity parameters between freely extracted hydrocarbons (Bitumen I) and a second extract (Bitumen II) from within the kerogen matrix of Permian and Triassic sedimentary rocksNabbefeld, Birgit; Grice, Kliti; Schimmelmann, A.; Summons, R.; Troitzsch, U.; Twitchett, R. (2010)In this study we compared various maturity dependent aromatic, steroid and triterpenoid hydrocarbonratios in bitumens that are freely extractable from sedimentary rocks (Bitumen I) with those in second extracts that ...
Biomarker distributions and stable isotopes (C, S, H) to establish palaeoenvironmental change related to the end-Permian mass extinction eventNabbefeld, Birgit (2009)Extinction, the irreversible loss of species, is perhaps the most alarming symptom of the ongoing biodiversity crisis. Some of the most significant changes in evolution throughout Earth’s history have coincided with ...
