Bisthiourea: thermal and structural investigation
- 153 Downloads
Bisthiourea derivatives 1,1′-(ethane-1,2-diyl)bis(3-phenylthiourea), 1,1′-(propane-1,3-diyl)bis(3-phenylthiourea), and 1,1′-(butane-1,4-diyl)bis(3-phenylthiourea) have been synthesized and characterized by IR, 1H NMR, and 13C NMR. Suitable crystals of 1,1′-(propane-1,3-diyl)bis(3-phenylthiourea) were grown for single-crystal X-ray analysis and from the data it was observed that they organize into the P-1 space group. The thermal decomposition of these compounds has been studied by TG–DSC.
