Function – Reports the components of a ‘cp’ file in a spreadsheet format by compound type and number of carbon atoms.

Method – A program reads the ‘cp’ file and recasts the information in a format exportable to commercial spreadsheet programs.

Use – Composition is used whenever visualization in conventional chemistry terms is required. The report is a numerical report readily used in spreadsheet format to determine differences between files. This is particularly useful in using Troubleshoot or for devising customized kinetic models.

Development Status – Programs to report composition by type and carbon number, by NMR carbon type, or by paraffins, naphthenes and aromatics is complete. Programs to report compositions in specialized terms such as benzene, naphthalene, total aromatics content, n- vs. i- paraffins, thiophenic compounds, and other custom applications are easily written.
