This paper reports the
investigation of the thermal stability of a series of new complexes with mixed
ligands of the type M(dipy)(C3H3O2)2(H2O)y ((1) M: Mn, y=1; (2) M: Ni, y=2; (3) M: Cu, y=1; (4) M: Zn, y=2; dipy: 2,2’-dipyridine and C3H3O2
is acrylate anion). The thermal behaviour steps were investigated. The thermal
transformations are complex processes according to TG and DTG curves including
dehydration, oxidative condensation of acrylate and thermolysis processes.
The final products of decomposition are the most stable metal oxides.
