Abstract: CdCl2 and CdBr2, dissolve in NaNO3-KNO3 eutectic melt. When these melts are heated, cadmium halides undergo decomposition reaction, CdBr2 reacting with a faster rate as compared with CdCl2. The two reactions obey second order kinetics. In the case of CdCl2, eutectic system, CdO, NaCl, KCl, NO2 and O2, are obtained as the end products. However, in the case of CdBr2-eutectic system, CdO, NaBr, KBr, Br, NO2 and O2 are obtained as the reaction products. The kinetics of the reactions have been followed by isothermal thermogravimetry and the solid residues identified by X-ray diffraction technique. The gaseous products have been analysed in the usual manner. Mechanisms of reactions have been explored by DTA technique also.
