Abstract

Since the discovery of tasmanite in 1851, scientific interest in this oil shale
has shown much variation. The recent resurgence of research activity on tasmanite has
been occasioned by the availability of new techniques which now permit the organic
matter to be examined in considerable detail.
This paper presents a summary of the history, nature and chemistry of tasmanite,
followed. by a comprehensive bibliography. The survey was prompted by a recent catalogue
of Tdsmanites from the palynological viewpoint, and the lack of a similar publication on
tasmanite itself. The references are given in alphabetical order, together with an
abstract. Additional annotations are made, if pertinent.
