Studies on the pyrolysis of cyclo-aromatic diesters derivatives of 3-phenylprop-2-en-1-ol are presented. The diesters are obtained during catalyzed esterification process of a stoichiometric ratio of 3-phenylprop-2-en-1-ol with suitable cycloaliphatic or aromatic acid anhydride in the solvent-free medium. As an acid anhydrides cyclohexane-1,2-dicarboxylic anhydride, cis-4-cyclohexene-1,2-dicarboxylic anhydride, bicyclo2.2.1-5-heptene-2,3-dicarboxylic anhydride, and phthalic anhydride were applied. The thermal properties of obtained compounds under inert atmosphere were tested by means of differential scanning calorimetry and thermogravimetry coupled with FTIR analysis. The pyrolysis products were determined and the probable mechanism of their decomposition was proposed.
