Physo-chemical reactions and transport phenomena occurring during pyrolysis of wood chips have not yet been understood to the required extent for its effective utilization for power generation. FTIR spectroscopy has been applied time-resolved to analyse the product gas composition of a single pyrolysing wood particle. A special particle reaction chamber has been built to allow for an in situ measurement of the product gas in close vicinity of the particle surface.
