Sequential extract residues (Ri, i=1, 2, 3, 4, 5) were obtained from Hefeng acid-washing coal (HFAC) by petroleum ether, carbon disulfide, methanol, acetone and isometric carbon disulfide/acetone mixture, sequentially. Pyrolysis behavior of the samples was carried out using thermogravimetry analysis. Coats-Redfern method with different reaction order was used to analyze the pyrolysis kinetic of each sample, and the kinetic parameters, including correlation coefficient (R2), activation energy (E), pre-exponential factor (A), were calculated. Results showed that the weight loss of extract residues was higher than HFAC, and pyrolysis behavior varies greatly for residues, which may be due to unstable structure after extraction. From conversion-temperature (α-T) curves, pyrolysis process was divided into three stages: low-temperature stage (150-350 oC), medium temperature stage (350-550 oC) and high temperature stage (550-950 oC). And the medium temperature stage made great contribution to the process of pyrolysis, which was dominated by depolymerization and decomposition reaction, and the effect of kinetic fitting to this stage is better, with R2 higher than 0.95. Relationship between kinetic parameters and reaction order showed that swelling effect might be an important reason for the discrepancy of E for each sample in the process of pyrolysis. And Ln(A)-E relationship has a great significance to predict E and the A under higher reaction order.
