Cobalt(II) complexes of tetradentate Schiff bases of the type CoL [H2L=C20H16N2O2 (H2dsp), C21H18N2O2 (H2dst), C20H15N3O4 (H2ndsp) and C16H16N2O2 (H2salen)] have been synthesized and characterized by UV-visible, IR, and magnetic studies. Various thermodynamic parameters have been calculated for the decomposition step using TG/DTA. C20H14N2O2Co complex has the minimum and C16H14N2O2Co complex has the maximum activation energy.

The complexes of cobalt(II) with dothiepin (DOT) hydrochloride have been studied for kinetics of thermal degradation by thermogravimetric
analysis (TG) and derivative thermogravimetric studies (DTG) in a static nitrogen atmosphere at a heating rate of 10 C min−1. A general mechanism of thermal decomposition is advanced involving dehydration and decomposition process for both organic
and inorganic ligands. The thermal degradation reactions were found to proceed in three steps having an activation energy
in the range 6.75–170 kJ mol−1. Thermal decomposition kinetics parameters were computed on the basis of thermal decomposition data.
The extraction of cobalt/II/ from ammonium chloride-ammonium hydroxide buffer solutions of pH 6.5 by 2,4-dihydroxyacetophenone thiosemicarbazone /DATS/ in n-butanol has been studied. Cobalt/II/ forms 11 complex /metal:reagent/ with DATS. Addition of pyridine enhances the extraction. The influence of metal concentration and the effect of diverse ions on the extraction of cobalt/II/ have been investigated.
The extraction of cobalt/II/ from ammonium thiocyanate solutions by di-n-pentyl sulphoxide /DPSO/, di-n-octyl sulphoxide /DOSO/ and their mixtures in carbon tetrachloride has been studied. The species extracted were found to be Co/SCN/2. 4S /where S=DOSO or DOSO/. Synergic effects have been observed which are ascribed to the formation of mixed ligand metal complexes. The influence of the metal concentration, temperature and the diluent on the extraction of cobalt/II/has been investigated.
The thermal analysis of CoC2O42H2O, Co(HCOO)22H2O and Co(CH3COO)24H2O was carried out with simultaneous TG-DTG-DTA measurements under non-isothermal conditions in air and argon atmospheres.
The intermediates and the end products of decomposition were characterised by X-ray diffraction and IR and UV-VIS spectroscopy.
The decomposition of the studied compounds occur in several stages. The first stage of dissociation of each compound is dehydration
both in air and argon. The next stages differ in air and argon. The final product of the decomposition of each compound in
air is Co3O4. In argon it is a mixture of Co and CoO for cobalt(II) oxalate and cobalt(II) formate but CoO for cobalt(II) acetate.
Equilibrium distribution coefficients have been determined for the extraction of cobalt(II) with 8-mercaptoquinoline as a function of pH and reagent concentraton at ambient temperature. The extractable complex is a diadduct, i. e. two molecules of the reagent are coordinated to the cobalt(II) chelate. The adduct formation constant in chloroform and the overall formation constant in the aqueous phase have been determined. Pyridine and its methyl derivatives were found to enhance the extraction of Co(II) into chloroform in the presence of 8-mercaptoquinoline. From the extraction equilibrium data, the adduct formation constants of 12 chelate to nitrogen base adducts were evaluated. The special role of steric factors is discussed.

A series of coordination polymers, cobalt(II)–[dipicolylamide-propyl poly(dimethylsiloxane)]s (Co-DPPDMS), was prepared and
studied by thermogravimetry (TG) and double-shot pyrolysis-gas chromatograph-mass spectrometry (Pyro-GC-MS). The TG curves
of the Co-DPPDMSs exhibited two events for the mass loss, and the Pyro-GC-MS results suggested that the decomposition reaction
of the PDMS chains in the ligand polymer occurred at the second event. The activation energy Ea and the reaction order n of each event were estimated by curve fitting based on the order rate equation, and the results were compared with those
obtained using the Kissinger method for non-isothermal degradation.
A series of complexes has been prepared with the halides of cobalt(II), nickel(II), copper(II) and 2-,3-,4-ethylpyridine. The compounds were essentially all octahedral with the exception of those formed between 2-ethylpyridine and the cobalt(II) halides. The stereochemical configurations were deduced using spectral and magnetic properties. The decomposition of the complexes was studied by thermogravimetry and differential thermal analysis.
This work reports a study on the synergistic extraction of cobalt(II), spiked with60Co from hydrochloric acid solutions by mixtures of trioctylamine (TOA) and neutral organophosphorous donors into carbon tetrachloride.
Synergistic coefficients and adduct formation constants have been evaluated from distribution measurements and correlated
with the basic character of donors.
The inorganic sorbent potassium cobalt(II) hexacyanoferrate(II) was tested for removal of radiocesium from alkaline salt solutions that are typical of intermediate level radioactive wastes generated at spent fuel reprocessing plants in India. Excellent results were obtained both in batch equilibration and column operation.
