An activation energyEa=195 kJ mol−1 has been determined for the thermal decomposition of NdC2O4Cl to NdOCl with simultaneous expulsion of CO and CO2. As compared with the value (127 kJ mol−1) predicted by the Kahwa-Mulokozi empirical expression (i) for Ln2(C2O4)3 (Ln=light lanthanide), the presence of Cl in the coordination polyhedron appreciably raises the activation energy, which is consistent with a corresponding increase in the covalent strength of the Ln-oxalate bond. The same conclusion regarding the strength of this bond is drawn from a study of the infrared spectrum.
