Özet

Ulukisla oil shale in Turkey was pyrolysed at varying heating rates by thermogravimetric analysis. Kinetic analysis was undertaken at the decomposition steps of pyrolysis using the Coats & Redfern kinetic method. In addition, activation energies and reaction orders of the steps were calculated. Moreover, structural analysis of the oil shale sample was carried out by FTIR spectrometry, X-Ray diffractometry and XRF spectrometry.
