AbstractA 1 mg specimen of polyacrylonitrile (PAN) was pyrolyzed in the TGA in a stream of nitrogen or air and the products were introduced to the APCI/MS/MS through a short glass capillary. The molecules of the product were ionized under atmospheric pressure, and analyzed in real time with three serial quadrupole mass filters. The main products were HCN, acetic acid, and a series of nitriles. The generation of each product is discussed in the light of the thermogravimetric analysis.
