The thermal decomposition of three new reagent cyclohexylamine-p-tolylglyoxime (L1H2), tertiarybutyl amine-p-tolylglyoxime (L2H2) and secondary butylamine-p-tolylglyoxime (L3H2 and their Co-complexes were studied by both isothermal and nonisothermal methods. As expected, the complex structure of Co-complexes, different steps with different activation energies were realized in decomposition process. Model-fitting and model-free kinetic approaches were applied to nonisothermal and isothermal data. The kinetic triplet (f(alpha), A and E) related to nonisothermal model-fitting method can not be meaningfully compared with values obtained from isothermal method. The complex nature of the multi-step process of the studied compounds was more easily revealed using a wider temperature range in nonisothermal isoconversional method.
