ABSTRACT:     The present study investigated and compared the complexation properties of different nitrogen moieties as donors with picric acid as the acceptor. The moieties were triethylamine (TEA), hydrazine (Hyd), thiosemicarbazide (TSC), phenylhydrazine (Phy), and pyridine (Pyr). The composition and stoichiometry of the synthesized complexes were verified by spectrophotometric titration and elemental analysis. The formed complexes were characterized using IR, Raman, 1H NMR, and UV-Vis spectroscopy, and CHN elemental analysis. Thermogravimetric experiments were carried out to investigate the thermal properties of the complexes. The microstructure properties of these complexes were investigated using optical light microscope (OLM). The donation from the nitrogen moieties to the picric acid acceptor in decreasing order was found to be Hyd > TEA > TSC > Phy > Phr. Interestingly, the thermal degradation of the TSC complex led to sulphur atoms remaining as a final residual. The OLM micrograph patterns indicate the formation of high quality coloured crystals.
