N,N-dimethyl-N'-benzoylthiourea (DMBT) complexes of Ni(II), Cu(II), Co(II) and Pd(II) were synthesised. The thermal decomposition of these metal complexes was investigated by TG, DTG and DTA. A GC-MS combined system was used to identify the products during pyrolytic decomposition. The pyrolytic end-products were identified by X-ray powder diffraction. The thermoanalytical data of these complexes are presented in this communication. The kinetic analysis of the thermogravimetric data was performed by using the Coats-Redfern and Horowitz-Metzger methods. All the metal complexes except Cu(II) complex undergo decomposition in three stages and NiS, CoS, Pd, and Cu remained as end-products of the complexes.
