The paper focuses on the kinetic parameters of synthesizing Co3O4 nano-powder by thermal decomposition of hydroxide Co(OH)2 under isothermal conditions. The thermal decomposition of Co(OH)2 nano-powder under isothermal conditions was carried out in a tube furnace in the temperature range from 150 to 200 °C. Findings of research show that the thermal decomposition rate constant at 200 °C is approximately 2.7 times higher than that at 150 °C. Accordingly, for 80 min of thermal decomposition, the process accelerates 1.8 times. The activation energy of this process is approximately 33 kJ/mol, which indicates a mixed reaction mode. The study shows that Co3O4 nanoparticles obtained at the temperature of the maximum thermal decomposition rate, i.e. 180 °C, mainly consist of elongated ovoid and acicular aggregates with an average particle value of 47 nm and the length of up to 200 nm.
