Thesis: Feasibility of mixing simulated Gas Chromatography with physical distillation data in the determination of True Boiling Point Curve of crude oil using PT5 technology

My MSc project involved the determination of True Boiling Point Curve of Crude oil using both the conventional physical distillation and simulated distillation gas chromatography methods. The two data, used to build advanced chemometrics model called PT5, were compared to establish a correlation between them.
