It is comprised of a tube holding denture cream that consists of 170.lg of baking soda, 28.35g of ground pumice stone and 142.05ml of mineral oil (selected from one of the following groups of light mixtures of alkanes in the C15 to C40 range from a non-vegetable source, a distillate of petroleum, a paraffinic oil based on n-alkanes, naphthenic oil based on cycloalkanes, aromatic oil based on aromatic hydrocarbons) and a double headed brush in which the front brush has coarse bristles for scrubbing and a rubber brush for deep cleaning.
The 2D plane is divided into four separated zones according to the class of compounds: normal and branched alkanes, cycloalkanes, aromatic hydrocarbons, and biomarkers of crude oil such as steranes and terpanes.

With the new process, the phenolic components of bio-oil can be converted with high selectivity to cycloalkanes (ring-shaped alkanes) and methanol.
Aliphatics are further divided into three main classes: alkanes, alkenes and cycloalkanes. The alkynes, another type of aliphatic structure, are not commonly found in petroleum hydrocarbons.
Among the differences are "carbon types." In addition to paraffinic and olefinic, respectively characterized by alkanes' saturated and alkenes' unsaturated (at least one double bond between carbon atoms) straight or branched chains, there are the more relevant naphthenic, with mostly cycloalkanes (saturated methylene group rings -- picture adjacent tiles on a Scrabble board) and aromatic, in which unsaturated benzene rings characterize the molecular structure.
Topics include the analysis of alkanes and cycloalkanes, alkenes and alkynes, aromatic compounds, hydroxyl-containing compounds, water, amines and amides, carbonyls, carbohydrates, amino acids, peptides and proteins, synthetic polymers and rubbers, and a history of NIR applications.
