Synthesis, characterization and thermal behaviour of light trivalent lanthanides folates on solid state
MetadataShow full item record
Solid state Ln(2)-L(3) compounds, where Ln stands for light trivalent lanthanides (lanthanum to gadolinium), except promethium, and L is folate (C(19)H(17)N(7)O(6)), have been synthesized. Simultaneous thermogravimetry and differential thermal analysis (TG-DTA), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), X-ray powder diffractometry, infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), TG coupled to FTIR, elemental analysis and complexometry were used to characterize and to study the thermal behaviour of these compounds. The results provided information concerning the stoichiometry, crystallinity, ligand's denticity, thermal stability, thermal behaviour and identification of the gaseous products evolved during the thermal decomposition of these compounds.
