Asked in Chemistry, Wood-Burning Stoves
Does wood undergo pyrolysis before it burns?
Wood undergoes pyrolysis as it burns. Pyrolysis is the destructive distillation of the wood, producing gasses, which burn as they leave the wood, and carbon, which will also eventually burn. This is how wood normally burns. There is a link to an article on pyrolysis below. ...

What is the main advantage of spray pyrolysis technique?
uniform deposition will be occur
What are the differences between combustion and gasification?
As with incineration, pyrolysis, gasification and plasma treatment of waste are thermal processes in which waste is exposed to high temperatures. However, the essential difference between combustion and pyrolysis technologies (MATRIX, gasification, plasma treatment) is that no oxygen is used during the pyrolysis at all, and therefore no oxidation takes place: substances are not burnt but rather "melted". ...

Does the product of a pyrolysis reaction depend on the chemical structure of the starting material?
yes, it also depends on T.
What are the steps involved in recycling tires?
The pyrolysis method for recycling of used tires is an innovation technique that uses a special mechanism to heat the used tires in a closed, oxygen free environment - a stove to melt down the tires into the materials that there were made of. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tire_recycling#Tire_Pyrolysis ...

What is Pyrolysis?
Pyrolysis is a thermochemical decomposition of organic material at elevated temperatures without the participation of oxygen. It involves the simultaneous change of chemical composition and physical phase, and is irreversible. The word is coined from the Greek-derived elements pyro "fire" and lysis "separating". Pyrolysis is a case of thermolysis, and is most commonly used for organic materials, being, therefore, one of the processes involved in charring. The pyrolysis of wood, which starts at 200-300 °C (390-570 °F), occurs for example in fires where solid fuels...

What is the reaction for pyrolysis gasoline hydrogenation?
In the first stage reactor, di-olefins are being hydrogenated. Cheng et al. (1986) studied the kinetics of pyrolysis gasoline hydrogenation over the supported palladium catalyst. The hydrogenation reaction is proposed as the following consecutive way: Conjugated diene -----> monoolefin.......> alkane ...
