The development and applications of a preparative scale sample controlled thermogravimetric (SCTG) system were discussed in the article. The objective of the system was to allow the preparation, under precisely controlled thermal conditions, of sufficiently large amounts of coal chars that could then be characterized using a range of analytical techniques. The performance of the system was illustrated by decomposition studies on selected inorganic compounds and its application to coal pyrolysis and oxidation studies were discussed.
