Abstract: The thermal decomposition processes of ZnSn(OH)6 were studied using TG/DTG at various heating rates of 2.5, 5.0, 10.0, 15.0, 20.0 K·min -1. The results showed that the decomposition proceeded through one step in nitrogen atmosphere at the temperature range from 298 to 873 K. A good agreement was found between the mass loss of the thermal decomposition of ZnSn(OH)6 and the theoretical mass loss. The thermal decomposition kinetics was investigated employing non-isothermal multiple scanning method. The activation energy for the decomposition reaction of ZnSn(OH)6 was determined to be E=128.77 kJ·mol-1 in nitrogen atmosphere and the pre-exponential factor of its kinetics equations was calculated to be lg(A/s-1)=10.61. The mechanism function was obtained to be Mample Power theorem.
