Adducts of Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II), Zn(II) and Pb(II) saccharinates with 1,10-phenathroline were synthesized and their thermoanalytical (TG, DTG and DTA) curves in the 20-1000°C temperature interval and static air atmosphere were recorded. The complexes are best represented as M(C12H8N2)x(C7 H4NO3S)2·yH2O (x=2, 2, 2, 2 and 1;y= 1, 1, 2, 1 and 2 for M=Co, Ni, Cu, Zn and Pb, respectively). The decomposition of the compounds regularly started with dehydration, followed by loss of the phenanthroline ligand(s). The structures of the Cu and Pb complexes are notably different from other compounds. FTIR spectra of the title compounds in the region of the OH, CO and SO2 stretching vibrations were also studied. The pronounced similarity of the spectra of Co, Ni and Zn adducts indicates possible isomorphism among them.
