Heavy organics from crude oil was precipitated using single n-alkane and binary mixtures of n-alkane solvent of varying ratios. Precipitation can occur due to changes in composition temperature or pressure during crude oil production and transportation. The heavy organics Precipitates were studied and fractionated using column chromatography to separate them into different components. The focus of this research is to determine the resin content of the solid precipitate from the various ratios of the different binary mixtures using uv-visible spectroscopy. The results obtained showed increase in the absorbance of the resin content with decreasing carbon numbers for both single nC5 nC6 nC7 and binary mixtures 31 of nC5 nC6 31 of nC5nC7and 31 of nC6 nC7.
