The thermal decomposition of natural iowaite of formula Mg6Fe2(Cl,(CO3)0.5)(OH)16·4H2O was studied by using a combination of thermogravimetry and evolved gas mass spectrometry. Thermal decomposition occurs over
a number of mass loss steps at 60°C attributed to dehydration, 266 and 308°C assigned to dehydroxylation of ferric ions, at
551°C attributed to decarbonation and dehydroxylation, and 644, 703 and 761°C attributed to further dehydroxylation. The mass
spectrum of carbon dioxide exhibits a maximum at 523°C. The use of TG coupled to MS shows the complexity of the thermal decomposition

The thermaldecomposition behavior was measured by using a C-500 type Calvet microcalorimeter from Setaram, France, which had a high sensitivity and equipped with two 10 mL vessels. The precision of enthalpy measurement was
The thermogravimetric analysis of several coprecipitated zinc-copper oxalates in nitrogen is reported. The thermal decompositions of these mixed oxalates show a separate single step for dehydration and decomposition in the mass loss versus temperature curve. It is found that the onset temperature decreases with composition. For example, it decreases from 380‡ for zinc oxalate to 260‡ for copper oxalate. The end-product is mixed oxides and copper metal. These studies indicate the formation of an interpenetrating structure or mixed crystals during coprecipitation. Rate parameters have been calculated for dehydration and decomposition.

A combination of thermogravimetry and hot stage Raman spectroscopy has been used to study the thermal decomposition of the
synthesised zinc substituted takovite Zn6Al2CO3(OH)164H2O. Thermogravimetry reveals seven mass loss steps at 52, 135, 174, 237, 265, 590 and ~780C. MS shows that the first two mass
loss steps are due to dehydration, the next two to dehydroxylation and the mass loss step at 265C to combined dehydroxylation
and decarbonation. The two higher mass loss steps are attributed to decarbonation. Raman spectra of the hydroxyl stretching
region over the 25 to 200C temperature range, enable identification of bands attributed to water stretching vibrations, MOH
stretching modes and strongly hydrogen bonded CO32--water bands. CO32- symmetric stretching modes are observed at 1077 and 1060 cm-1. One possible model is that the band at 1077 cm-1is ascribed to the CO32- units bonded to one OH unit and the band at 1092 cm-1is due to the CO32- units bonded to two OH units from the Zn-takovite surface. Thermogravimetric analysis when combined with hot stage Raman spectroscopy
forms a very powerful technique for the study of the thermal decomposition of minerals such as hydrotalcites.</o:p>

The thermal decomposition of magnesium peroxoborate was studied by means of a derivatograph. It was found that the decomposition involves a sequence of reactions: dehydration and O2 evolution. The kinetic parameters were obtained in each step of the reaction. The thermal stabilities of three kinds of metal peroxoborates are discussed.
Conflicting results have been reported by different workers on the thermal decomposition of silver carbonate, Ag2CO3. In the present study, the decomposition mechanism was elucidated by various analytical methods; gas analysis (differential thermal gas analyses) in helium, carbon dioxide and oxygen flows with and without a P2O5 trap or a KOH trap, DTA-TG in a carbon dioxide flow and high-temperature X-ray diffraction analysis in a carbon dioxide flow.

The thermal decomposition of SbOCl, Sb4O5Cl2 and Sb8O11Cl2 has been studied by thermogravimetry with identification of the products resulting in the condensed phase by X-ray diffraction and infrared technique. It is shown that in nitrogen SbOCl undergoes progressive stepwise thermal disproportionation to Sb2O3 and SbCl3 with formation of Sb4O5Cl2 and Sb8O11Cl2 and as intermediates. It is thus confirmed that Sb3O4Cl, suggested to be formed instead of Sb8O11Cl2, is not an intermediate of this process. An identical mechanism is observed in air but with oxidation of Sb2O3 to Sb2O4.
