The thermal behaviors of [1,1,1-trifluro-3-(2-thenoyl)-acetonato]copper(II) Cu(TTA)2 and its adducts with pyridine Cu(TTA)2(Py)2, 2,2'-bipyridine Cu(TTA)2(Bpy), quinoline Cu(TTA)2(Ql)2, and dimethyl sulfoxide Cu(TTA)2(DMS) in a nitrogen atmosphere were studied under the non-isothermal conditions by simultaneous TG-DTG-DSC technique. The results showed that the evolution of the solvent molecules generally proceeded before the release of TTA in different ways according to their structures. The Cu(TTA)2(Bpy) exhibited a unique decomposition pattern due to its distinctive structure. The dependences of activation energy on extent of reaction for all the stage of each compound were determined by using an isoconversional method, Flynn-Wall-Ozawa equation, which show E values varied with reaction progress, indicating the complexity of these decomposition reactions. In addition, the values of activation energy E for TTA molecules evolution are generally higher than that for the solvent molecules release.
