A New Method of Pyrolysis
The usefulness of pyrolysis in gas chromatography is determined by the uniqueness and repeatability of the pattern produced and the convenience of the method. In order to produce a unique repeatable pattern, it is necessary to be able to control and repeat the factors of sample size, time and temperature of pyrolysis, sample dispersion, and atmospheric conditions in the pyrolysis chamber. Careful attention must also be given to the column system used and the operating parameters of the gas chromatograph. The results of a study directed towards repeatable and convenient pyrolysis are presented.
