The chloro complexes of 2-amino-3-methylpyridine with cobalt(II) and copper(II) have been prepared in ethanolic solution and solid compounds have been isolated. The compounds have stoichiometry ML2Cl2 whereM is Co2+ or Cu2+ and L is 2-amino-3-methylpyridine. Spectral and magnetic studies have been used to obtain information about the environment of the metal ion in these compounds. The compounds have tetrahedral structures. The thermal decomposition of each compound has been studied using thermogravimetry and differential thermal analysis. Thermogravimetry studies show that the cobalt complex forms an intermediate compound before the metal oxide is produced while the copper compound undergoes decomposition with loss of organic ligand and the formation of copper chloride which then decomposes to give an oxide of copper. The enthalpy of reaction for each of the processes has been calculated from the thermal analysis curves.
