Abstract: Some complexes of rare earth and valine were synthesized: monovalino -hexaquo-neodymium, samarium. Their property was determined by the EDTA titration, element analysis, infrared spectrum, thermogravimetry, differential thermal analysis and melting point measure. The thermal decomposition mechanism had been deduced, and non-isothermal kinetics of the thermal decomposition of the complexes also had been studied with the methods of Achar and Coats-Redfern. These parameters were carried out that the activation energy (E ), the values of logarithm of preexponential factore {ln(A/s-1)} and the kinetics equation of the complexes’ first step reaction which belong to the stagy of water-loss and the framework of amino acid breaking down.
