Abstract  

Lanthanide picrates with 1,3-dithiane-1,3-dioxide ligand were synthesized and characterized. Thermal decomposition of these compounds by TG/DTG and DSC and structural studies were performed. It was found that the compounds are comprised in a single isomorphous series and their thermal decomposition occurs as exothermic events. The final products were found to be lanthanide dioxysulfates.

Abstract  

Isothermal decomposition kinetic of three lanthanide mixed complexes with the general formula of Ln(thd)3phen (where Ln=Nd3+, Sm3+ or Er3+, thd=2,2,6,6-tetramethyl-3,5-heptanodione and phen=1,10-phenanthroline) has been studied in this work. The powders were characterized by their melting point, elemental analysis, FTIR spectroscopy and thermogravimetry. The isothermal TG curves have been recorded under the same conditions at 265–285, 265–285 and 250–270°C for Nd(thd)3phen, Sm(thd)3phen and Er(thd)3phen, respectively. The kinetic parameters, i.e. activation energy, reaction order and frequency factor were obtained through the technique of lineal regression using the relation g(α)=kt+g 0. The analysis was done at decomposed fractions between 0.10–0.90. The values of activation energy were: 114.10, 114.24 and 115.04 kJ mol–1 for the Nd(thd)3phen, Sm(thd)3phen and Er(thd)3phen complexes, respectively. The kinetic models that best described the isothermal decomposition reaction the complexes were R1 and R2. The values of activation energy suggests the following decreasing order of stability: Nd(thd)3phen<Sm(thd)3phen<Er(thd)3phen.

Abstract  

Ln(TFA)3⋅3AZA (Ln=La, Sm, Er; TFA=trifluoroacetate and AZA=2-azacyclononanone)compounds were synthesized and characterized by microanalytical procedures, IR spectroscopy, X-ray powder diffraction, and thermal analysis. A kinetic study using La, Sm and Er thermogravimetric curves was carried out aiming to proposing a mechanism for the thermal decomposition of such complexes.

′-dimethylformamide (dmf) is a very popular solvent applied in the synthesis of lanthanide coordination polymers. Polarity of dmf molecules is crucial in the growth process of crystals. Dmf dissolves well not only most of the organic ligands but also inorganic

Abstract  

The complexes of general formula Ln(btfa)3L, where Ln=Eu or Tb, btfa=4,4,4-trifluoro-1-phenyl-1,3-butanedione, L=1,10-phenanthroline (phen) or 2,2-bipyridine (bipy), were synthesized by reacting the corresponding metal chloride with the proper β-diketone and the other ligand. The complexes were obtained in the powder form and were characterized by photoluminescence and TG. Their thermal decomposition was studied by non-isothermal thermogravimetric techniques. The Eu(btfa)3bipy complex presented the highest thermal stability and it melts before being decomposed. The complex Eu(btfa)3phen presented the largest activation energy for a heating rate of 5C min–1.

Abstract  

The thermal decomposition reactions of crystalline chelates of general formula Ln(thd)3 (Ln=La,Pr, Nd, Sm and Gd; thd=2,2,6,6-tetramethyl-3,5-heptanedione) have been studied by isothermal thermogravimetry. Several models were proposed initially to calculate the kinetic parameters by isothermal method, thus the time reduced method was used to define the best kinetic models. The Avrami–Erofeev (Am=2, 3 and 4) and R1 and R2 models presented good agreement with experimental data, as well as, linear correlation coefficient (r) and standard deviation (s).
