Abstract:
The aim of the work is to synthesise a new semiorganic crystal of L-Alanine Potassium Penta Borate Octa Hydrate [LAPPB]. The LAPPB crystals were synthesised by adopting slow evaporation method. The Size of the materials obtained are a = 9.04 Å, b = 11.5Å, c = 11.03Å. The characterization for the obtained materials were done using UV-VIS, FTIR, Microhardness, SHG and Thermal anaysis methods. The structure of the synthesised crystals were found to be orthorhombic. The FTIR spectrum of the synthesized compound reveals the functional groups present in it. The UV-VIS Spectrum shows the optical transmission of the crystal. The SHG of APPB was tested by Kurtz-Perry technique using Nd:YAG laser. TG/DTA analysis shows the thermal stability of the crystal. The mechanical strength was analysed by measuring microhardness of the grown LAPPB crystals.
