Abstract

The effect of prior gamma irradiation on the thermal decomposition, ignition and combustion of coal has been studied using thermogravimetry, differential thermal analysis and isothermal techniques. Data indicate that for high ash containing coals the thermal decomposition is drastically catalysed, the ignition temperature is lowered very significantly and the flame duration is increased by gamma irradiation.
