The review indicates that the assignment of D and G bands, and its consequent deconvolution cannot be blindly applied to all amorphous carbons and that this is especially true for coals of different ranks. Therefore, the correlations between band width and intensities and graphitization, carbonation, rank/order, char structure and reactivity of coke are not consistent. Preliminary investigations indicated promising results for the characterization of inorganic matter and minerals in coal.
