Abstract

The undesirable properties (e.g., low heating value, high viscosity, and thermal and chemical instability) of the pyrolyzed products have prompted us to enhance the selectivity of desired products by using catalysts during biomass pyrolysis. Microwave-assisted pyrolysis (MAP) induces heating within the core of the substance through a direct energy ...
