Robinia pseudoacacia has been planted all over the world, while R. pseudoacacia flowers (RPFs) are not enough utilized except edibility. The high value resourcing of RPFs were explored by nano pyrolysis. The original powder of RPFs and the sample treated with the nanocatalysts (NiO, Fe2O3, 1/2 NiO + 1/2 Fe2O3) were pyrolyzed at 550°C. This result indicates that the pyrolysis at 550°C can increase the content of bioenergy and cosmetics in the pyrolysis products in RPFs, while the nano-Fe2O3 cannot play a positive catalytic role. The findings here suggested that RPFs have great potential in high value resourcing for biomedicine and chemical materials.
