In the article the chemistry of the noncatalytic oxidative desulfurization process of distillate oil fractions is analyzed. The study involves the characteristics of high-sulfur straight-run diesel fraction of narrow composition (593–623 K) before and after oxidation by air at 453–493 K and a pressure of 3.0 MPa. The composition of sulfur compounds in the raw material fraction was determined. It is shown that straight-run fractions of raw materials may also contain sulfoxides, which are products of oxidation of organosulfur compounds and are formed during storage of petroleum products. On the basis of IR spectroscopic studies of raw materials, oxidized products and model mixtures, the transformation depth of fr. 593–623 K sulfur compounds, which are distributed in the form of sulfones and sulfoxides in solid and liquid oxidation products, and partially remain in the purified fuel, was analyzed in the above-mentioned process.
