Analytical Pyrolysis-Chromatography: Something Old, Something New
Bower, Nathan W.; Blanchet, Conor J. K.
Journal of Chemical Education, v87 n5 p467-469 May 2010
Despite a long history of use across multiple disciplines, analytical pyrolysis is rarely taught in undergraduate curricula. We briefly review some interesting applications and discuss the three types of analytical pyrolyzers available commercially. We also describe a low-cost alternative that can be used to teach the basic principles of pyrolysis. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
