Abstract
The preparation of oxamic acid complexes of general formula M(H2NCOCOO)(2) . xH(2)O (M = Mn-II, Co-II, Ni-II, Cu-II or Zn-II; x = 1 for Cu-II, x = 2 for the other metals) is reported. The i.r. and Raman spectra are discussed considering a trans-octahedral structure, formed by five-membered chelate rings with the amide oxygen and one carboxylic oxygen as donor atoms. The apical positions are occupied by water molecules. The thermal degradation process is very similar for the different complexes, first losing H2O in one or different steps, then the fragments of the organic ligand to give the metal oxide as residue. The thermal degradation of the Cu-II and Zn-II compounds results in the formation of a new polymeric compound by deprotonation of the primary amide function in an endothermic process, the polymer further decomposes to form the metal oxide.
