The present paper reports the synthesis and kinetics of thermal degradation studies of resin salicylicldehyde -ethylenediamine -formaldehyde (SdEDF) derived by the condensation of salicylicldehyde and ethylenediamine with formaldehyde in the presence of catalyst hydrochloric acid in 1:1:2 molar proportions of reactants. Detailed thermal degradation studies of the SdEDF resin has been carried out to ascertain its thermal stability. Thermal degradation curve has been discussed in order to determine their mode of decomposition, order of reaction, apparent activation energy, frequency factor, free energy change, entropy change, and apparent energy change. Freeman - Carroll and Sharp- Wentworth methods have been applied for the calculation of kinetic parameters while the data from the Freeman - Carroll methods have been used to determine various thermodynamic parameters.
