It has been reported that liptinite does not contribute significantly to char formation, but contributes to liberation volatile rate [Cloke, 1994; Valentim, 2004] and to the flame stability [Shibaoka, 1969], while the vitrinite and inertinite are considered precursors of the formed char type [Shibaoka, 1985].
The vitrinite content is moderate at 45 %, the inertinite content is about 50 % and vitrinite reflectance at around 1.
