Thermal decomposition kinetics of hydrazinium cerium 2,3-Pyrazinedicarboxylate hydrate: a new precursor for CeO2.

Abstract

The thermal decomposition kinetics of N(2)H(5)[Ce(pyrazine-2,3-dicarboxylate)(2)(H(2)O)] (Ce-P) have been studied by thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), for the first time; TGA analysis reveals an oxidative decomposition process yielding CeO(2) as the final product with an activation energy of approximately 160 kJ mol(-1). This complex may be used as a precursor to fine particle cerium oxides due to its low temperature of decomposition.
