Nucleation kinetics, growth and studies of diglycine magnesium sulfate crystals
A semi-organic crystal viz. diglycine magnesium sulfate crystal has been grown by solution method with slow evaporation technique. The solubility of the sample was carried out by gravitational method at various temperatures. Nucleation parameters were evaluated at different values of supersaturation ratio. The grown crystal was subjected to single crystal XRD studies to find the lattice parameters. Microhardness was measured by using a Vickers microhardness tester at different applied loads. The grown crystal does not show second harmonic generation (SHG) behavior. Functional groups of the sample have been identified. Complex impedance values were measured at different frequencies and temperatures and the results are discussed.
