Abstract

Single crystals of a new nonlinear optical material, bisthiourea-urea have been grown from aqueous solution by slow evaporation technique with a period of 4 weeks. The structure of the grown crystals was confirmed by X-ray diffraction (XRD). The presence of title compound in the crystal lattice has been qualitatively determined by FTIR analysis. The mechanical properties and thermal stability of the grown crystals were evaluated by Vickers microhardness test and TG and DTG, respectively.
