Single crystal of bisthiourea iron(II) sulphate was grown by slow evaporation technique at 303 K. The structural properties of the grown crystals were characterized by FTIR spectroscopy, UV spectroscopy and powder X-ray diffraction. FTIR and UV spectra provide information about the presence of functional groups. Thermal analysis confirms the crystal is thermally stable up to 167.02 °C.
