This study involves the pyrolysis of raw and impregnated hemp plant under different temperatures in a static reactor. Pyrolysis experiments were carried out with raw hemp plant at 300, 400, 500, 600 and 700 ºC with a heating rate of 10 ºC.min-1. Hemp plant was then impregnated with KOH, K2CO3 and H3PO4 and activated under static atmosphere at 300, 500, and 700 ºC. Liquid products, bio-oils, were characterized by column chromatography, elemental analysis and FTIR....
