Py–GC–MS was used to examine the components of vapor from rapid pyrolysis of larch wood and its model components, i.e. example cellulose, xylan, and lignin, and their mixture in accordance with the proportion of the components in larch wood. In this study, a total of 97 compounds in 12 categories were identified in the pyrolysis vapor and were compared. It was found that the most abundant chemical species in these five types of pyrolysis vapor were different. Saccharides and ketones were the major compounds in the pyrolysis vapor from microcrystalline cellulose and xylan, respectively, whereas the most abundant compounds in the pyrolysis vapor from alkaline lignin were sulfur compounds and phenols. Saccharides and ketones were major components of the pyrolysis vapor from MMC, whereas the main compounds in the pyrolysis vapor from larch wood were ketones, phenols, aldehydes, and saccharides. The different composition of the pyrolysis vapor from larch wood and its model mixture was explained on the basis of their different structural frameworks and the non-structural components of larch wood. It was also concluded that the presence of non-structural components, including extractives and ash, affect the pyrolysis reaction of larch wood. Nevertheless, the detailed patterns of this process must be further studied.
