Abstract

Trifluoromethoxy functionalized copper(II) Schiff base complexes N,N'-bis(5-trifluoromethoxysalicylaldehyde)cyclohexanediiminatodiaquacopper(II) and N,N'-bis(5-trifluoromethoxysalicylaldehyde)phenylenediiminatocopper(II) were synthesized and characterized. Thermal decompositions of the synthesized complexes were studied by thermogravimetry in order to evaluate their thermal stability and thermal decomposition pathways. Three similar decomposition steps occurred for the two copper complexes. Mass losses and evolved gasses were characterized by TG/DTA-MS. Kinetic parameters were calculated and the results showed that the values obtained are comparable.
