Abstract

The growth and characterization of a new non-linear organometallic crystal, potassium thiourea thiocyanide (PTT) is reported. The growth of single crystals was accomplished by the slow evaporation solution growth method. The grown crystals were characterized by XRD, TG–DTA, UV, and FTIR spectral analyses. PTT has good optical transmission in the entire visible region which is an essential requirement for a non-linear crystal. TG curve of PTT undergoes complete decomposition between 176 and 1,000 °C in three steps with corresponding three DTA peaks. The high thermal stability of organometallic crystals are due to strong bonding existing between the conjugation layers of thiourea molecule and the potassium ions.
