The effect of the preheating rate of the char particles from Kuznetsk bituminous coal on their specific reaction rate was determined. The experiments were carried out with char samples with mean diameters of 0.15 and 0.35 mm heated to temperatures of 900–1000°C. It was found that the specific surface area of the initial coal, measured by CO2 adsorption at 273 K, for rapid and slow heat treatments increased more that two times. According to the results of thermogravimetric analysis, it was established that rapid pyrolysis in a muffle furnace led to the production of char whose maximum specific reaction rate was higher than that of the samples after slow pyrolysis.
