This experimental setup is characterized by very high sensitivity and stability when recording the motion of the reflected light spot along a standard recorder chart (Fig. 4b). 0 μm thick. 2 Equipment for Studying Linear Pyrolysis on a Bulky Heat-Conducting Block In experiments on linear pyrolysis, the use of a thin metal plate as a heater is convenient in the case of fast decomposition. Studies of linear pyrolysis characterized by rates in the range of 10−6 –10−9 m s−1 are of significant interest for determining a correlation between the constants of decomposition in the volume and the 36 2 Methods for the Experimental Study of the Linear Pyrolysis of Condensed Materials macrokinetic parameters of the process.

Nauka, Moscow Chapter 2 Methods for the Experimental Study of the Linear Pyrolysis of Condensed Materials Abstract Original instruments for measuring rates of linear pyrolysis (the stationary one-dimensional propagation of the reaction front in condensed compound thermal decomposition) are described. Kinetic constants of the fast high-temperature decompositions of polymers and inorganic materials (which cannot be obtained using isothermal kinetic methods) can be calculated from the experimental data provided by them.

So far, the kinetic mechanisms for low-temperature destruction in the volume that occur at relatively low rates (half-lives in the range from minutes to hours) have been characterized for polymers from various classes (see for example [17, 18, 19]). The application of physical methods (calorimetry, thermogravimetry, manometry and others) in combination with chromatography and mass-spectrometry has allowed a relationship between the destruction rates and the structures of the corresponding polymeric systems to be established.
