Abstract : Guava leaves treated with herbicide were found to be less flammable than untreated green leaves or dead leaves. Differences in flammability were determined by small-scale laboratory fires, differential thermal analysis, and thermogravimetric analysis. The herbicide-treated leaves had a higher ash content and a lower ether extractive content. A direct relationship was found between analysis and actual burning tests. The results of microthermal analyses of pyrolytic reactions can indicate the behavior of the fuel in small-scale burning tests.
