Partial dehydration of Dy2(SO4)3·8H2O was studied employing TG, DSC, D.C. electrical conductivity and spectroscopic techniques. The possible mechanism for the loss of water molecules (partial dehydration) was found to be random nucleation obeying Mapel equation based on TG trace. The DSC traces are supports the results of TG traces and are also utilized to understand the enthalpy changes accompanying the partial dehydration and phase transition accompanying the dehydrated samples. D.C. electrical conductivity studies are attempted to supplement these TG studies. Attempts are made to explain the structural changes accompanying dehydration on the basis of infrared spectra and X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopic studies.
