Abstract: The thermal decomposition of the complexes Mg(ac)2 . (Et2na)2 . 2H2O (I), Mg(Cl3ac)2 . (Et2na)2 . 3H2O (II), and Cu(Cl3ac)2 . (Et2na)2. 3H2O (III) (where ac = CH3COO-, Cl3ac = Cl3 CHCOO-, and Et2na = N,N-diethylnicotinamide) had been investigated in air in the temperature range 20-1000° C by means of thermogravimetry (TG) and differential thermal analysis (DTA). The composition of the complexes and the solid state intermediate and resultant products of thermolysis had been identified by means of elemental analysis and complexometric titration. The possible scheme of destruction of the complexes is suggested. Heating the compounds first results in a release of water molecules. The loss of the volatile ligand (Et2na) occurs in one step. The thermal stability of the complexes increases in the sequence: II, III, I. The final products of the thermal decomposition were MgO (l and II) and CuO (III). The IR, EPR, and electronic spectral analyses were used. Et2na is coordinated to Mg(II) and Cu(II) through the nitrogen atom of its heterocyclic ring. EPR data suggest a dimeric structure of compound III.
