|Title:||A thermal analysis study of the influence of exchangeable cations on the pyrolysis of Victorian brown coal||Authors:||Ma, S.
|Issue Date:||9-Mar-1992||Citation:||Ma, S.,Hill, J.O.,Heng, S. (1992-03-09). A thermal analysis study of the influence of exchangeable cations on the pyrolysis of Victorian brown coal. Thermochimica Acta 197 (1) : 79-90. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||A thermal analysis study of the pyrolysis of some cation-loaded brown coals has revealed that most of these cations have no significant effect on the total volatile matter released during slow pyrolysis; however, the results of infrared evolved gas analysis show that cation-loaded coals release more CO2 at lower temperatures than an acid-washed reference coal. Among the cations investigated, CU2+, Fe2+ and Pb2+ have the most significant catalytic effect on the pyrolysis of brown coal. The pyrolysis kinetics indicate that the CU2+, Fe2+ and Pb2+ loaded coals have a lower average pyrolysis activation energy than the acid-washed reference coal. © 1992.||Source Title:||Thermochimica Acta||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/93023||ISSN:||00406031|
