Abstract
Capillary gas chromatographic, liquid chromatographic and coupled gas/mass spectrometric analysis procedures were developed to analyze pyrolytic oils produced from cellulosic waste residues. Some of the major components identified were: ethanol, 1-butanol; acetaldehyde; furfuryl alcohol; 5-methylfurfural; and 4-hydroxy-3-methoxystyrene. The pyrolytic oils contained a number of valuable chemicals. Further investigations on the isolation of these valuable chemicals from pyrolytic oils are recommended.
