A general survey is given of the thermal reactivity of aromatic hydrocarbons to provide information basic to the understanding of the conversion of organic materials to carbon. Differential thermal analysis was employed on 84 aromatic hydrocarbons to delineate the thermal sequences during pyrolysis to 750°C. Absorption spectra, electron spin resonance, chromatography, and molecular weight determinations have been used to determine the mechanisms and structural changes which occur.
