Abstract: Measurements of the force of detachment of air bubbles from the surface of coal of rank 31.1 and 31.2 precovered with n-alkane in the homologous series from n-hexane to n-hexadecane were carried out in 0 to 10 mass % aqueous solution of diacetonyl alcohol. Using the contact angle values measured earlier in the same system the detachment force was also cal­culated. On the basis of measurements and calculations we stated that the detachment force depend on the thickness of n-alkane film precovering the coal surface, the kind of n-alkane and diacetonyl alcohol concentration. The most profitable conditions for creating a stable connection of coal/n-alkane film—air bubble in diacetonyl alcohol solution were found with a thick n-alkane film at 1 % solution of diacetonyl alcohol. A good agreement between the measured and calculated values of the detachment force for the systems studied was also shown.
