In this paper an attempt has been made to emphasise the importance and efficiencies of coal micropetrographic approach in investigating reactivity of microcomponents (macerals) and illustrates the advantages to be accrued in industrial applications both qualitatively and quantatively through microscopic methods. The main aim of the paper is to highlight the different physico-chemical characteristics of Gondwana coals of India and reactive changes of various microconstituents in the natural vis-avis laboratory condition. Microcompositional aspects of coal reactivity can adequately be observed qwith the help of a reflected light microscope. It has been observed that, although the qualitative microscopical investigations are most usual method of studying the reactive changes, but measurement through reflectance photometry and flurometry can add an important quantitative dimension to the degree or scale of reactivity.
