The thermal behaviours of the Ti(II), Mn(II), Fe(II), Ni(II), Cu(II) and Zn(II) complexes of triethanolamine were studied by means of thermogravimetry, differential thermogravimetry, differential thermal analysis infrared spectrophotometry and elemental analysis. The sequence of thermal stability of the metal complexes, determined by using the initial decomposition temperature, was found to be Ti(II)≅Mn(II)>Fe(II)>Ni(II)>Zn(II)>Cu(II). Some of the kinetic parameters, such as the activation energy and order of reaction for the initial decomposition reaction, were calculated and the relationship between the thermal stability and the chemical structure of the complexes is discussed. © 1995 Akadémiai Kiadó.
