Abstract : This paper gives a theoretical discussion of carbon formation from the pyrolytic decomposition of a gaseous carbon compound in an isothermal flow reactor of cylindrical shape and radius. It is assumed that pyrolysis of the gas gives an active species that can add to carbon particles and that the carbon particles with n equal to or greater than 2 can grow in the gas phase or deposit on the wall.
