Abstract

In this article, the effect of magnesium doping on the properties of bis(thiourea)zinc(II) chloride (BTZC) crystals has been described. The incorporation of Mg(II) into the crystal lattice was confirmed by energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy and quantified by inductively coupled plasma technique. The powder X-ray diffraction and FT-IR spectral analyses indicate that the crystal undergoes considerable stress as result of doping. SEM studies of pure and doped samples indicate the formation of structural defect centers in BTZC crystals. The TG–DTA studies reveal the purity of the materials, and no decomposition is observed up to the melting point. Improved crystalline perfection by doping is observed by high-resolution X-ray diffraction. High transmittance is observed, and the cutoff λ is ~295 nm.
