Hello Trina and Brian,
I would be very careful with final statements as this one Brian.
Farquhar et al 1997; Koziet et al 1997, Bréas et al 1998, Saurer et al
1998, Kornexl et al 1999, Revesz and Böhlke 2002, Lécuyer et al
2007...amongst others have published EA pyrolysis data which did not
come from a FlashHT or a TCEA . Plus if you read carefully those papers
you will discover as well that some of those data have been generated at
temperatures different from the one you indicate.
