Raman spectroscopy traces the microstructural evolution of carbonaceous matter (CM) during artificial heating.Thermo-chemical reactivity and strength of blast furnace coke at 1100 °C is dependent on the graphitizationstate of the feed coke. A standard coke reactivity index (CRI) sample is composed of lumps, showing a highmicrostructural variability. The frequency distribution of the D-STA parameter estimated by the “InteractiveFitting of Raman Spectra” (IFORS) software suggests a positive correlation between degree of CM organizationand CRI. Samples from the tuyere region of an operating blast furnace evidence graphitization of CM at temperatureshigher than 1900 °C. IFORS parameters, calibrated by x-ray diffraction-based lattice dimensions andtransmission electron microscopy data constrain a temperature gradient decreasing from the raceway to thedeadman zone. The gradient controls a continuous variation of the petrographic coke texture. As an ap
