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.
