The conversion of primary vapors from pine pyrolysis over a variety of catalysts was characterized using an autosampler and a micro-reactor, both coupled with an MBMS. Promising catalysts were further tested to investigate the effects of hot gas filtration, temperature and hydrogen donor molecules on rate of deactivation of catalysts.
