The thermal decomposition of ammonium aluminum carbonate hydroxide was studied under non-isothermal conditions in air. The decomposition kinetics were evaluated from data of TG-DTA by means of the Kissinger equation and the Coats-Redfern equation. The values of the activation energy E, the preexponential factor A and the algebraic expression of integral G(α) functions of the thermal decomposition were calculated. The ammonium aluminum carbonate hydroxide (AACH) was characterized by X-ray diffraction, differential thermal analysis and thermogravimetric and field emission scanning electron microscopy.
