Thermal analysis of 4-[(4-chlorobenzyl)oxy]-4′-chloro-azobenzene dye, exhibiting liquid crystalline properties, was performed in dynamic air atmosphere. The compound behavior was investigated using TG, DTG, DTA and DSC techniques, under non-isothermal linear regime. The evolved gases were analyzed by FTIR spectroscopy. Kinetic parameters of the first decomposition step were obtained by means of multi-heating rates methods, such as isoconversioanl methods, IKP method and Perez-Maqueda et al. criterion.
