ABSTRACT
The combustion properties and pyrolysis behavior of cigarette paper under the pyrolysis conditions of cigarette smouldering were investigated by micro-scale combustion calorimetry (MCC), thermogravimetric analysis coupled to Fourier transform infrared spectrometer (TG-FTIR), respectively. MCC results demonstrated that the combustion and pyrolysis behavior are influenced by heating rate obviously. TG-FTIR results illustrated that the composition of the gaseous products were mainly composed of CO, HO carbonyl compounds, CO, and methanol. Flash pyrolysis experiment in combination with high performance liquid chromatography (FPy-HPLC) was used to study the pyrolytic formation of eight carbonyl compounds (i.e., formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, acetone, acrolein, propionaldehyde, crotonaldehyde, methyl ethyl ketone, and butyraldehyde) during the pyrolysis of cigarette paper under the pyrolysis conditions of cigarette puffing. Moreover, the solid char formed after the flash pyrolysis experiments were studied by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). It had been found that the pyrolysis temperature influenced the formation of carbonyl compounds and the composition of char greatly.
