Abstract

In this study, instances where thermal analysis techniques ( differential scanning calorimetry, thermogravimetry, differential thermal analysis, etc.) have been applied for fossil fuel characterisation and kinetics are reviewed. The scientific results presented clearly showed that thermal analysis is a well-established technique used in fossil fuel research area. The literature survey showed that thermal methods were important not only theoretically but also from a practical point of view.
