Thermogravimetric and pyrolytic analyses were carried out to detect the various active ingredients and chemical substances in the leaves of Chinese white pine (Pinus armandii Franch), which were then analyzed and studied to understand their functions and the functions of their chemical components. The chemical substances contained therein mainly represent acrylamide, glycidol, pyruvic aldehyde, formic acid, cyclopentadiene, acetic acid, isovaleraldehyde, benzoic acid, and stearic acid. These chemical ingredients can be applied to new bioenergy, medicinal fields, and food ingredients such as spices. These chemical components also provide a new scientific basis and developmental direction for the utilization of Pinus armandii.
