A reaction between cobalt oxide and ammonium chloride was studied. A possible mechanism of this reaction was determined by TGA and DSC. The reaction products were identified by IR spectroscopy, chemical and XRD analyses. A multistage mechanism was established for reaction between cobalt oxide and ammonium chloride. Cobalt chloride was determined to be the final product; the reaction occurs via the for-mation and decomposition of (NH 4) 3CoCl 5, (NH 4) 2CoCl 4, and NH 4CoCl 3.
