Abstract

Potassium Hydrogen Phthalate also known as Potassium Acid phthalate (KAP) has 14 natural growth faces with dominating (010) face. As the (010) face is more suitable for any surface morphological studies, a number of crystal growth studies have been made on this material in recent years. Here this semi organic crystal was grown by Slow Evaporation Solution Growth Technique. The effect of ammonium sulphate as dopant on the characteristic properties of KAP crystal was studied by thermal and spectral analysis.
