Abstract

Semicarbazone of dl-camphor (SdlC) crystals were grown using methanol as a solvent by slow evaporation solution growth technique at room temperature. Formation of the product and the presence of various functional groups present in the grown crystal have been identified using FTIR spectra. Single crystal XRD study was conducted to obtain the crystal structure and lattice parameters. The grown crystal was subjected to 1HNMR and 13CNMR spectral studies and TG-DTA in order to confirm its structure, purity, and stability, respectively. The optical transparency of the crystal was tested using UV–Vis–NIR spectroscopy. The nonlinear optical (NLO) property of the grown crystal was confirmed from the second harmonic generation (SHG) by Kurtz–Perry powder test.
