Abstract : The report extends an earlier theoretical discussion for carbon formation from the pyrolytic decomposition of a gaseous carbon compound in an isothermal flow reactor of cylindrical shape and radius R(0). It is assumed that pyrolysis of the gas occurs homogeneously with a specified rate constant and gives an active species (designated C) that can add to carbon particles C + C(n) yields C(n+1). The results indicate that all the particles, including C, can deposit on the wall or grow in the gas phase. (Author)
