chelates of the type [Ni(II)(Diox.H)2], ((Diox.H)2:
various α-dioximes) have been studied by means of FTIR, NMR, MS data
and various thermoanalytical methods (TG, DTA, DTG, DSC). In some cases kinetic
parameters of the thermal decomposition of the complexes were also calculated
using Zsak’s ‘nomogram method’. The mechanism of
the decomposition processes was characterised on the basis of mass spectra.
