Biomass pyrolysis chemistry and global kinetics at high heating rates (Fuel Chemistry Division Preprints)

The initial step of biomass thermal conversion involves the
primary decomposition of the lignocellulosic matrix that is composed
of three interconnected polymeric materials: cellulose, hemicellulose,
and lignin. Pyrolysis mechanisms typically include a superposition of
the kinetic mechanisms for the individual components of the biomass
material. The validity and development of these mechanisms is
currently of interest [1-3]. A graphical summary of two global
biomass pyrolysis models [1,3] at the experimental conditions of this
study is presented in Figure 1
