Pyrolysis

a chemical process that occurs when heating in the absence of oxygen causes the chemical decomposition of a compound into its component substances. Pyrolysis often precedes combustion and the gases given off by it are the materials that burn in the flame. Pyrolysis takes place just below the char layer of the material (i.e., wood).
