Experimental results are given on the change in the chemical composition of peat in the process of low-temperature thermolysis (100-450°C) in a current of nitrogen by the method of group analysis. When peat is heated to 200-250°C the amount of bitumens and of water-soluble substances in the thermolysis residues increase and that of the other components (readily hydrolyzable substances, humic and fulvic acids, cellulose, and lignin) falls.
