The kinetics of the aromatisation of both rearranged and non-rearranged monoaromatics have been investigated in the laboratory under free radical conditions. These studies have indicated that the aromatisation rate constant for the non-rearranged is greater than that for the rearranged isomers at any one particular temperature. Since the members of the rearranged series coelute with their non-rearranged counterparts when both series are present in geological extracts, these results suggest that care needs to be exercised when assessing extents of maturation using monoaromatic and triaromatic steroid hydrocarbons.
