Solvate complexes of UO22+ andN(1), N(4)-bis(salicylidene)-S-methylisothiosemicarbazone, (H2Me-L1), of general formula [UO2(Me-L1)S] (S= H2O, MeOH, EtOH, Py, DMF and DMSO) were synthesized. The methanolic UO22+” adducts of N(1)-benzoylisopropylidene-N(4)-salicylidene-S-alkylisothiosemicarbazone, (H2R-L2,R=Me, Prn) of general formula [UO2(R-L2)· MeOH], were also prepared. Thermal decomposition of the complexes was investigated in air and argon. The complexes decompose
to α-U3O8 in air, while in argon the decomposition is not completed up to 1000 K. The temperature and the mechanism of decomposition
of the complexes are a function of the solvent belonging to the inner coordination sphere.
