The solution of a number of the tasks directed on optimization of processes of complex processing of peat for needs of industries and agricultural production includes technologies of regulation of an exit of valuable group components one of which are peat humic acids (HA). The analysis of the methods directed on increase in extent of extraction of humic acids presented in article showed the most optimum way of temperature impact on a feed stock as a result of which there is a change of structure and properties of the modified HA. By a complex of physical and chemical methods it is established that the preliminary thermolysis of peat is method of modification of structure of HA leading to removal of unstable side structural fragments in a macromolecule and to increase in a share of nuclear part.
