The changes in the amounts of the pseudocomponents of humic and fulvic acids in thermolysis are calculated on the basis of the results of NMR-13C, infrared spectroscopy, and functional analysis. The possible mechanism of transformation of the pseudocomponents in the course of thermal decomposition is considered. The thermodynamic probability of proceeding of the reactions is estimated. It is shown that among the selected 25 types of reactions, the proceeding of 21 of them is thermodynamically probable.
