Vapour thermolysis processes of copper(II) bis-chelate complexes with different β-diketones in the 160-640°C temperature range were studied by using the high-temperature source of a molecular beam with mass spectrometric recording of the gas phase composition directly at the outlet from the thermal reactor. Schemes of a heterogeneous decomposition of these compounds vapour were suggested on the basis of temperature dependences of the thermolysis gaseous products composition. It was established that the mechanisms of thermal conversion of copper(II) complexes with fluorinated and non-fluorinated ligands were not similar. A comparison of the thermal behaviour of the complexes with fluorinated and non-fluorinated ligands in vacuum, hydrogen and oxygen was carried out. Effective values of kinetic parameters in the Arrhenius equation were calculated for the first-order reaction on initial compound from the temperature dependence of the rate constant. The sequence of copper(II) complexes with β-diketones having different end substituents according to the thermal stability was revealed from the values of the thermal decomposition activation energy.
