The thermochemical behavior of cellulose, glucomannan, and xylan was investigated by pyrolysis–gas chromatographymass spectrometry (Py-GC/MS). In each case, major GC-amenable condensable products were classified into several compound groups, and the formation of these monomer-related fragments from the model substance samples was determined at 500, 600, and 700 C with a residence time of 5 s and 20 s. The results revealed that despite some general formation trends, no compound group was selectively formed at certain temperatures. Of the 11 product groups, the primary ones, including lactone, furan, and cyclopentenone derivatives, accounted for 72–85% (from cellulose), 86–90% (from glucomannan), and 76–81% (from xylan) of the total amount of pyrolysis products determined. At 500 C, about half of the major product groups accounted for lactones, such as 3-hydroxy-2-penteno-1,5-lactone and 5H-furan-2-one. It was also confirmed by thermogravimetric analyses that within the temperature range studied, cellulose was thermally more stable than the heterogeneous hemicelluloses. These kinds of data are of importance, for example, with respect to efforts to develop new biorefinery possibilities for renewable resources. ...

Analytical pyrolysis of wood and non-wood materials from integrated biorefinery concepts Ghalibaf, Maryam (2019)Wood and non-wood differ with respect to their anatomical, physical, and chemical properties, even among their species, resulting in different behaviors during thermal conversion. Hence, understanding the degradation ...
Fast pyrolysis of hot-water-extracted and soda-AQ-delignified okra (Abelmoschus esculentus) and miscanthus (miscanthus x giganteus) stalks by Py-GC/MS Ghalibaf, Maryam; Ullah, Saleem; Alén, Raimo (Pergamon Press, 2018)The thermochemical behavior of various samples of okra (Abelmoschus esculentus) and miscanthus (Miscanthus x giganteus) stalks (initial, hot-water-extracted, and those from sulfur-free delignification) were studied by ...
Combustion behavior of black liquors : droplet swelling and influence of liquor composition Chen, Chengcong (University of Jyväskylä, 2017)The combustion of black liquor (BL) in a recovery boiler is a central process in a kraft pulp mill for recovering the cooking chemicals and for producing heat and power. This work explored the most important combustion ...
Availability of extractives from various Norway spruce Picea abies stumps assortments Halmemies, Eelis S.; Brännström, Hanna E.; Karjalainen, Mikko; Nurmi, Juha; Alén, Raimo (Marcel Dekker, 2023)Stumps and knotwood of Norway spruce (Picea abies) are valuable sources of wood extractives. Although lignans from knotwood have already been utilized in value-added products, the behavior and valorization of stump-derived ...
Pyrolysis-gas chromatography : mass spectrometry analysis of di- and triterpenoids Renzi, Francesca (2017)The objective of this work was to study a specific class of extractives existing in lignocellulosic biomass and more precisely in wood materials, and their thermochemical behavior during pyrolysis. The focus was centered ...
