As one 3-D coordination polymer, lead formate was synthesized; calorimetric study and thermal analysis for this compound were performed. The low-temperature heat capacity of lead formate was measured by a precise automated adiabatic calorimeter over the temperature range from 80 to 380 K. No thermal anomaly or phase transition was observed in this temperature range. A four-step sequential thermal decomposition mechanism for the lead formate was found through the DSC and TG-DTG techniques at the temperature range from 500 to 635 K.
