his study examined the non-isothermal kinetics of the slow pyrolysis of Imperata Cylindrica (IC). Pyrolysis conditions were developed under the pure N2 flow and non-isothermal conditions at the heating rates of 2.5, 5, 10, and 17.5 K/min and over the temperature range of 303–1173 K. The IC pyrolysis profiles could be identified into three parallel reactions, each of which corresponded to pseudo-hemicelluloses (P-Hem), pseudo-cellulose (PCell), and pseudo-lignin (P-Lig) decomposition. A systematic kinetic study of the pyrolysis of IC via thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) deconvolution using Asymmetric Double Sigmoidal (Asym2sig), Friedman differential iso-conversional and combined kinetics of biomass pseudo-components was carried out. The kinetics parameters of pseudo components fitted well with the pyrolysis experimental data for all the heating rates. Differential master-plots showed that the reaction mechanisms for pseudo hemicellulose (P-Hem) and pseudo cellulose (PCell) were diffusional and order based, and high order based (3rd order) for the pseudo lignin (P-Lig). Mechanism of P-Hem, P-Cell and P-Lig could be further reconstructed to Sestak and Berggren model of f(α) = α
