Overview of Chemical Characterization of Biomass Fast Pyrolysis Oils
Fast pyrolysis of biomass to produce bio-oil is one of the most promising technologies to utilize lignocellulosic biomass. Liquid bio-oil covers many potential application fields, to be used a fuel or a source for chemical extraction and production. Hence, it is necessary to understand the chemical properties of bio-oil. This review concentrates on the elemental and chemical properties of bio-oil, and also discusses the analysis and separation methods.
