    Abstract: Coal–water slurries were prepared with a sub-bituminous coal at varying coal and water ratios using an anionic liquid soap as a surfactant. The slurry properties, viscosity and stability were determined. The rheological properties of the slurries were investigated to ascertain the characteristics of the slurries. The results showed that increasing ... Show More
