Applications of analytical pyrolysis

Pyrolysis-Gas Chromatography  has evolved to become a routine analytical tool for the characterization and differentiation of polymers, both natural and synthetic. Several types of thermal analysis equipment have been developed to improve the analytical scope of Py-GC. The introduction of laser pyrolysis has become a new phenomenon for Py-GC. Furthermore, the development of a novel double-shot pyrolyzer incorporating both thermal desorption and flash pyrolysis, has become a useful instrument for the fast identification of low molecular weight polymer additives. Future developments in Py-GC technology have also been suggested, which include the use of comprehensive GC × GC
