Pyrolysis of Organic Molecules: 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 data published on pyrolysis, as well as numerous contributions on the pyrolysis of compounds not previously studied. This thoroughly revised edition contains new results reported since the first edition published, including the generation of traces of toxic compounds in various pyrolytic processes, pyrolysis in the presence of catalysts and solid supports, such as alumina, silica and non-inert metals, and the pyrolysis of specific mixtures of compounds, 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 solid supports, this book provides information on how single-compound pyrolysis offers an incomplete depiction of the results of various human activities.

  • Presents new information on the pyrolysis of specific compounds
  • Includes data on the mechanisms and kinetics of pyrolytic processes
  • Provides data on the influence of catalysts and solid supports on pyrolytic processes
