DTA and TG methods were used to study the melting, polymorphic transformation and thermal decomposition processes of alkali metal and ammonium mixed bifluorides formed by mutual replacement of the cations in the crystal lattice. We studied the structural features and the characteristics in the changes of thermal properties of individual compounds, solid solutions with unlimited solubility and solid solutions with limited solubility.

The thermal stability and non-isothermal kinetics of the decomposition of alkali metal bifluorides were studied using a derivatograph. The removal of hydrogen fluoride from LiF · HF and NaF · HF takes place before melting and their decomposition occurs in a single stage; however, potassium, rubidium and cesium bifluorides at first undergo polymorphous transformation and melting on heating, and their decomposition proceeds stepwise. The thermal stability of alkali metal bifluorides has been found to increase with increasing ionic radius of the cation, reflecting its correlation with the hydrogen bond strength in these compounds.

The thermal stability of alkaline earth metal hydrofluorides was studied by means of a Derivatograph. The values of the activation energy, reaction order and rate constant were determined. The comparison of the kinetic parameters of the decomposition process for the complete series of hydrofluorides studied led to a certain regularity in the differences in their thermal stabilities and its correlation with the strength of the hydrogen bond in their structure.

Data are presented on the properties of alkali metal and alkaline earth hydrofluorides. Melting, thermal decomposition and interaction of hydrofluorides with various classes of inorganic substances are discussed. Some regularities of changes in thermal properties within the sequences of the above hydrofluorides are established. Future directions of research in this field are outlined.
