Slow pyrolysis of fast growing wood Macaranga gigantea has been studied. The product yields and chemical composition of products obtained from the experiments under different conditions (temperature, reaction time, sample mass) were described. In all cases, Macaranga gigantean gave total product yields, ranging from 45-65%. The increase in temperature and reaction time resulted in the increase in product yields. The organic phase of the pyrolysis products contained phenol and its derivatives, furans, benzene and its derivatives, eugenol and the isomers, methyl esters, aromatic ketones, poly-aromatic hydrocarbons, and carboxylic acids; these compounds were mainly derived from lignin, cellulose and hemicellulose.
