Single crystals of Triglycine Sulfate (TGS) were grown in water and also were grown in water-soluble CdS nanoparticles dispersed in water by solution method with slow evaporation technique at room temperature. Watersoluble CdS nanoparticles were synthesized by microwave-assisted solution method using the precursors such as cadmium sulfate, thioglycolic acid and ethylene diamine and they were used for the growth of CdS-added TGS crystals. The grown crystals were characterized by XRD technique, UV-visible spectral studies, measurement of density, microhardness studies, atomic absorptions studies. The effect of Cd2+ ions on various properties of TGS crystals have been analyszed and reported.
Keywords: Crystal growth, XRD, TGS crystals, CdS nanoparticles.
