Colloidal structures of vacuum residue and their thermal stability in terms of saturate, aromatic, resin and asphaltene composition. S. Li et al. J. Petrol. Sci. Engng., January 1999, 22(1--3), 37--45.

The role of resin is highlighted in maintaining asphaltene stability. Brief attention is paid to the use of thermodynamic models for the interpretation of such stability. Numerous TEM (Transmission electron microscopy) photographs of various fractions and of oils are included. 23 refs.
