This thesis focuses on soot formation during biomass rapid pyrolysis at high temperature (1300 °C). A new method has been developed for collection of size-segregated soot samples. The experimental program systematically covers the effect of feeding rate on soot formation, characteristics of soot formed, properties of inorganic species in soot, soot formation during rapid pyrolysis of biomass components and biomass-derived products (bio-oil and biochar).

Thermogravimetric analysis of carbon black and engine soot - Towards a more robust oil analysis methodBredin, A.; Larcher, A.; Mullins, Benjamin (2011)This work examined the thermal behaviour of diesel engine produced soot and commercial carbon black using thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). It was found that during TGA analysis of the carbon matrices (at a temperature ...
