Fourteen sulphonamides have been thermally analyzed using thermogravimetry (TG), derivative thermogravimetry (DTG) and differential thermal analysis (DTA). Their thermal reactions and stabilities have been thoroughly studied. It was found that the sulphonamides are first transformed into sulphanilamide. The melting points of these sulphonamides have been determined through their DTA curves and by the Kofler microscope, the results agreeing with those reported in the literature. The amount of water of crystallization has been calculated from the TG and DTG curves. Analysis of mixtures of some sulphonamides has been achieved by thermal analysis and by thin-layer chromatography using different solvent systems.
