Synthesis, growth, optical and thermal properties of a new organic crystal semicarbazone of p-anisaldehyde (SPAS)


The semicarbazone of p-anisaldehyde (SPAS) is a novel organic nonlinear optical material. The SPAS has been synthesized and the solubility studies were carried out in the temperature range 30-60 ° C. Single crystals of SPAS have been grown following the slow evaporation technique and the unit cell parameters have been evaluated by single crystal X-ray diffraction technique. The UV-Visible, FT-IR and 1 HNMR spectra have been recorded to characterize the grown crystal. The thermogravimetric and differential thermal analysis of the grown crystal revealed that there is no phase transformation in SPAS, and its thermal stability was found to be good. The dielectric measurement was made as a function of frequency (50 Hz – 5 MHz). The second harmonic generation in the sample was confirmed by the Kurtz powder technique.
Keywords: crystal growth, XRD, solution growth, thermal studies, dielectric studies.
