    Abstract

    The paper is divided into two parts, as follows: the former includes a short review on the kinetics of wood thermal decomposition, while the latter studies the thermal behaviour of Eucalyptus chips, Eucalyptus brown stock pulp (BSP) and their corresponding lignin samples. The glass transition temperatures of the lignins extracted from Eucalyptus samples have been determined. On the basis of a decomposition model of the wood components, the dependence of the overall kinetic parameters on heating rate and conversion degree has been established.
