Abstract  

The thermal decomposition of synthetic serrabrancaite (MnPO4 · H2O) was studied in N2 atmosphere using TG-DTG-DTA. Thermal analysis results indicate that the decomposition occurs in two stages, which are assigned to the dehydration and the reduction processes and the final product is Mn2P2O7. X-ray powder diffraction, FT-IR and FT-Raman techniques were used for identification of the solid decomposition product. The decomposition kinetics analysis of MnPO4 · H2O was performed under non-isothermal condition through isoconversional methods of Flynn–Wall–Ozawa (FWO) and Kissinger–Akahira–Sunose (KAS). The dependences of activation energies on the extent of conversions are observed in the dehydration and the reduction reactions, which could be concluded the “multi-step” processes.
