Pyrolysis Single-Shot

Single-Shot is a term that was first used to describe the analysis of a sample at a single temperature. Historically, Single-Shot was applied to the flash pyrolysis of a sample. The sample is instantaneously subjected to a temperature high enough to break organic bonds. The degradation products or pyrolyzates provide insight into the chemistry of the initial sample.
More recently, the term has come to mean the analysis of a sample at a given temperature. This broadens the scope of the term to include thermal desorption, reactive pyrolysis, as well as flash pyrolysis.
