Pb(1,4-BDC)·(DMF)(H2O) (1,4-BDC=1,4-benzenedicarboxylate; DMF=dimethylformamide) has been synthesized and investigated by elemental analysis,
FTIR spectroscopy, thermogravimetry (TG), derivative thermogravimetry (DTG). TG-DTG curves show that the thermal decomposition
occurs in four stages and the corresponding apparent activation energies were calculated with the Ozawa-Flynn-Wall (OFW) and
the Friedman methods. The most probable kinetic model function of the dehydration reaction of the compound has been estimated
by the Coats-Redfern integral and the Achar-Bridly-Sharp differential methods in this study.
