This serves to introduce the present research and is chiefly historical. It deals briefly with methods of assessing the coking ability of coals and also with early modern, and contemporary investigations upon coke formation. The author's earlier work on the distillation of oil from coals is described fully since it forms both the starting point and the basis of the present research. This work showed the power of retention of oil which is capable of 'wetting' the surface of the coal, up to temperatures of 420 degrees C., was an essential characteristic of coking coals. Part II deals with attempts to add more oil mechanically to improve the coking performance of various coals.
