Abstract

Thiourea Urea Zinc (II) Chloride (TUZC), a new semiorganic non-linear optical material has been synthesized. The solubility studies have been carried out at room temperature. Single crystals of different proportions of TUZC have been grown by slow evaporation of saturated aqueous solution at room temperature. The FTIR and UV spectral bands have been compared with urea, thiourea and bis Thiourea Zinc Chloride (BTZC). The TG curve showed a two steps mass loss on heating the compound between 30 and 800 °C corresponding to two exothermic DTA peaks at 181–183 and 250–252 ºC.
