The stoichiometry of thermal decomposition of the complexes Co(NCS)2(fpy)4 (I), Co(NCS)2(Mefpy)4 (II) and Co(NCS)2(bfpy)4 (III) (where fpy = furo[3,2-c]pyridine, Mefpy = methylfuro[3,2-c]pyridine, bfpy = benzo-[2, 3]furo[3,2-c]pyridine) have been
investigated in nitrogen atmosphere from room temperature (RT) to 800 °C by means of TG and DTA. The results revealed that
release of heterocyclic ligands occurs in one step. Infrared data suggested that fpy, Mefpy and bfpy were coordinated to Co(II)
through the nitrogen atom of the respective heterocyclic ring and anionic ligands through nitrogen atom of the NCS groups.
4-Methoxy-2-methylbenzoates of Y(III) and lanthanides(III) (La-Lu) were prepared as crystalline anhydrous complexes with general
formula Ln(C9H9O3)3 (complexes of La and Pr as monohydrates). Monohydrates heated in air lose crystallization water molecule and then anhydrous
complexes decompose directly to oxides. Only La(III) complex decomposes to oxide with intermediate formation La2O2CO3. The carboxylate group in the studied complexes is a tridentate chelating - bridging or bidentate chelating (Y).

The compound [Ni(NH3)6][VO(O2)2(NH3)]2 was prepared and characterized by elemental analysis and vibrational spectra. The single crystal X-ray study revealed that
the structure consists of [Ni(NH3)6]2+ and [VO(O2)2(NH3)]− ions. As a result of weak interionic interactions V′···Op (Op-peroxo oxygen), ([VO(O2)2(NH3)]−)2 dimers are formed in the solid-state. The thermal decomposition of [Ni(NH3)6][VO(O2)2(NH3)]2 is a multi-step process with overlapped individual steps; no defined intermediates were obtained. The final solid products
of thermal decomposition up to 600°C were Ni2V2O7 and V2O5.

Hydrazine forms two different types of complexes with divalent metal ions and pyromellitic acid (H4pml) in aqueous medium: (i) hydrazinium complexes of formulae, (N2H5)2M(pml)·xH2O, where x = 3 for M=Ni and x = 4 for M=Co or Zn, and (N2H5)2Mn(H2pml)2, at pH 4.5, (ii) neutral hydrazine complexes with formulae, M2(pml)(N2H4)n·xH2O where M=Co or Ni when n = 4 and x = 5 or 4 and M=Zn or Cd when n = 2, and x = 4 or 3 at pH 7, and M(H2pml)(N2H4)·xH2O where x = 4; M=Cu and x = 0; M=Hg, at pH 3, 7.5, respectively. All the complexes are insoluble in water, alcohol and ether. The N–N stretching frequency
(990–1,007 cm−1 for coordinated hydrazinium ion and 956–985 cm−1 for bridged neutral hydrazine) indicates the nature of hydrazine present in the complexes. Simultaneously TG-DTA analysis
indicates that hydrazinium complexes undergo dehydration and dehydrazination in a single step endothermally in the range of
289–300 °C whereas neutral hydrazine complexes undergo endothermic dehydration (~100 °C) followed by exothermic dehydrazination
in the temperature range, 253–332 °C. The anhydrous metal carboxylates further decompose exothermally to leave the respective
metal oxides or metal carbonates except zinc, which gives its oxalate as the end product. X-ray powder patterns indicate that
even the complexes with the same formulation possess no isomorphism.

New mixed ligand complexes of the following stoichiometric formulae: M(2-bpy)2(RCOO)2·nH2O, M(4-bpy)(RCOO)2·H2O and M(2,4’-bpy)2(RCOO)2·H2O (where M(II)=Zn, Cd; 2-bpy=2,2’-bipyridine, 4-bpy=4,4′-bipyridine, 2,4′-bpy=2,4′-bipyridine; R=C2H5; n=2 or 4) were prepared in pure solid-state. These complexes were characterized by chemical and elemental analysis, IR and
Thermal behaviour of compounds was studied by means of DTA, DTG, TG techniques under static conditions in air. The final products
of pyrolysis of Cd(II) and Zn(II) compounds were metal oxides MO. A coupled TG/MS system was used to analyse of principal
volatile products of thermal decomposition or fragmentation of Zn(4-bpy)(RCOO)2·H2O under dynamic air and argon atmosphere.
The principal species correspond to: C+, CH+, CH3+, C2H2+, HCN+, C2H5+ or CHO+, CH2O+ or NO+, CO2+, 13C16O2+ and 12C16O18O+ and others; additionally CO+ in argon atmosphere.
