Abstract (in english)
   A critical analysis of the relationship between illite crystallinity and vitrinite reflectance has been undertaken based on published literature data. Although certain statistical trends have been recognized for samples from contrasting tectonic settings (e.g. platforms vs. orogens etc.) the general link between the two parameters is rather weak and appears to be controlled by many internal and external factors. Thus, illite crystallinity versus vitrinite reflectance relations documented from one particular basin can not be mechanically extrapolated to other areas and studies based on such simplistic approach shall be treated with caution.
