Effect of dopant on the growth of (Bis) aminoacetic acid cadmium chloride single crystals

Urea doped aminoacetic acid cadmium chloride single crystals have been successfully grown from slow evaporation technique. The purity of the crystals was increased by repeated recrystallization process. The grown crystals were optically transparent and large in size. The powder X-ray diffraction study shows the crystalline nature of the sample. The cell parameters and morphology of the grown crystal were determined by single crystal XRD analysis. The presence of functional groups in the compound crystal was confirmed by FT-IR analysis. The UV–Vis spectroscopic studies show that the grown crystal has 85% of transmittance window in the entire visible and IR region. Vickers microhardness study reveals that the grown crystal belongs to hard material category and the TG/DTA studies show the good thermal stability of the grown crystal. The relative second harmonic generation efficiency was found to be higher than that of the KDP crystal.
