This publication surveys the present state of thermal analysis from a numerical aspect. It deals with the applied methods and techniques, the substances studied, and the journals publishing papers on thermal analysis.
The thermal decomposition of some new primary aliphatic amine RNH2 (R=methyl-, ethyl-,n-propyl,i-propyl,n-butyl-,i-butyl-,n-amyl-,i-amyl-, cyclohexyl-andi-allyl-) complexes with cadmium(II) chloride, prepared by solid-gas phase chemisorption, have been investigated by simultaneous
TG-DTG-DTA. The enthalpy changes during the degradation were followed by DSC. The course of the thermal decomposition is described
in detail. The thermal properties observed were compared to the more recently reported nickel(II) analogues. The changes in
thermal parameters in the series of cadmium(II) chloride aliphatic amine complexes are discussed on the basis of the inductive
releasing effect of the aliphatic chain and the steric hindrance of the ligands.
