Journal of Analytical and Applied Pyrolysis
J Anal Appl Pyrol
Published/Hosted by Elsevier.
The international Journal of Analytical and Applied Pyrolysis is devoted to the publication of qualitative and quantitative results relating to:- Controlled pyrolysis (thermal degradation) of chemical materials, including synthetic and natural macromolecules as well as lower molecular weight chemicals;- Fundamental studies of pyrolysis processes by chemical, physical and physicochemical methods:- Studies of pyrolysis reaction kinetics, energetics, and mechanisms;- Environmental, geochemical, biological, medical, and forensic applications of analytical pyrolysis;- Studies in high temperature chemistry, including chemical vapor deposition;- Pyrolysis investigations of energy related problems, including the characterization of fossil/synthetic fuels and coal extraction/liquefaction products;- Technical developments and new instrumentation for pyrolysis techniques in combination with chromatographic or spectroscopic methods;- Automation, optimization and standardization of pyrolysis techniques;- Computer handling and processing of pyrolysis data, including library filing and retrieval techniques, and computer matching and advanced pattern recognition techniques;- Analytical characterization of materials by alternative means of degradation, for example, by ozonolysis, hydrolysis, derivatization, or enzymatic cleavage;- Oxidative pyrolysis, including studies in the combustibility and flammability of materials, and the chemistry of flames;- Applied pyrolysis, i.e. the use of pyrolysis methods in the disposal of waste materials and/or in the production of energy or commercially useful chemicals.
