Pyrolysis of Organic Molecules with Applications to Health and Environmental Issues, Second Edition offers a systematic presentation of pyrolysis results for the main classes of non-polymeric organic molecules. It covers a large body of data published on pyrolysis, as well as numerous original contributions to the pyrolysis of compounds not previously studied.

This thoroughly revised edition contains new results reported in the literature since the first edition published, including the generation of traces of toxic compounds in various pyrolytic processes; the pyrolysis in the presence of catalysts and solid supports such as alumina, silica, and non-inert metals; and pyrolysis of specific mixtures of compound such as amino acids plus carbohydrates. Since many pyrolytic processes occurring in everyday life involve mixtures of compounds and frequently take place in the presence of a solid supports, information about single-compound pyrolysis offers an incomplete depiction of the results of various human activities involving pyrolysis. The new information on pyrolysis of these mixtures has greatly improved the utility of the book.

  • New information on pyrolysis of specific compounds
  • Data on mechanisms and kinetics of pyrolytic processes
  • Data on the influence of catalysts and solid supports on pyrolytic processes
  • Information on Information on the pyrolysis process of compound mixtures frequently found in activities involving pyrolysis (e.g. waste incineration, smoking, fuel burning)
