Abstract: The structure of a new binuclear cadmium (II) complex, [Cd(H2O)2(Sal)2]2 (Sal= salicylate), has been determined by X-ray crystallography. It was also characterized byelemental analysis, its IR spectrum and thermogravimetric-differential scanningcalorimetry (TG-DSC). It crystallizes in the monoclinic system, space group P21/c, withlattice parameters a = 15.742(3) å, b = 12.451(3) å, c = 7.7225(15) å, β = 96.07(3)o andZ = 4. Two cadmium (II) ions are bridged by two μ2-carboxy oxygen atoms. Eachcadmium atom lies in a distorted capped octahedron coordination geometry. The thermalgravimetry (TG) data indicate that there are four discrete decomposition steps with twoendothermic peaks and one exothermic peak. The final thermal decomposition product isCdO.
Keywords: Salicylate; cadmium (II) complex; single crystal structure; TG-DSC.
