A novel complex [Ni(H2O)4(TO)2](NO3)2·2H2O (TO = 1,2,4-triazole-5-one) was synthesized and structurally characterized by X-ray crystal diffraction analysis. The decomposition reaction kinetic of the complex was studied using TG-DTG. A multiple heating rate method was utilized to determine the apparent activation energy (Ea) and pre-exponential constant (A) of the former two decomposition stages, and the values are 109.2 kJ mol−1, 1013.80 s−1; 108.0 kJ mol−1, 1023.23 s−1, respectively. The critical temperature of thermal explosion, the entropy of activation (ΔS), enthalpy of activation (ΔH) and the free energy of activation (ΔG) of the initial two decomposition stages of the complex were also calculated. The standard enthalpy of formation of the new complex was determined as being −1464.55 ± 1.70 kJ mol−1 by a rotating-bomb calorimeter.
