Abstract
Phase transitions of the alkali metal carboxylates have been explored by many researchers. A fair amount of scatter can also be observed in the published data. The aim of this study was to systematically study the thermal behavior of lithium, sodium, potassium, cesium and rubidium carboxylates, although only lithium, sodium and potassium carboxylates are industrially relevant.The success of the synthesis and purification of the carboxylates were confirmed by the infrared spectroscopy. The carboxylates were pure enough for further thermal study. Thermal analyses were performed using the cryogenic differential scanning calorimeter and the thermogravimetric analyzer. The nature of transition phases were investigated by microscopic differential scanning calorimeter. A critical evaluation of the present data in relation to literature values is included.
