Abstract: Thermal decomposition reactions of various copper (II) fluoride complexes of the general type Cu (L) F.xH_2O (L= asparagine(asp), arginine (arg), methionine (meth) and proline (pro), x = 3 to 4) have been studied in nitrogen atmosphere using TG and DTA techniques. A possible mechanism of decomposition is suggested on the basis of the reactions of their pyrolysis. The residues obtained at the end of various decomposition processes were identified through IR spectrometry. The kinetic parameters such as energy of activation (E^o ) and order of reaction (n) were also determined.
