    The irregular chemical structure of coal makes it an improbable substrate for bioconversion. Nevertheless, work completed in the last 20 years makes likely the development of practicable biological processes for beneficiation of low-rank coal and the conversion of low-rank coal to specific low-molecular-mass organic molecules and novel fluid fuels.
