In the present research article, we describe the synthesis of metal chelate polymers compounds also called as metal coordination complexes or polymer complexes by refluxing the metal acetate and bis ligand as 1:1 stoichiometry. Adipylbis-phenyl carbamide (ABPC) which acts as bis ligand for the preparation of chelate polymers of Mn(II), Co(II), Ni(II) and Zn(II). Based on elemental measurements, infrared, magnetic, and reflectance spectra structure of ligand and chelate polymers was affirmed. Thermal decomposition behavior of Mn(II), Co(II), Ni(II), Zn(II), polymers with adipylbis-phenyl carbamide (ABPC) has been investigated by thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) at heating rate 10 °C min-1 under nitrogen atmosphere. Freeman–Carroll, Sharp–Wentworth methods were used to calculate the thermal activation energy (Ea) the order of reaction (n), entropy change (ΔS), free energy change (ΔF), apparent entropy (S*), and frequency factor (Z).
