Article Preview

Solid solution of m-dinitrobenzene (DNB) and 4-bromo-2-nitro aniline (BNA) in urea (U) were prepared based on the prior study of phase diagram. The formation of solid solution was studied using the powder X-ray diffraction techniques. The powder X-ray data were also used for the study of particle size and strain in solid solution. The vapor sorption and desorption studies revealed that the hygroscopic character of urea was modified in solid solution. The study for the second harmonic generation efficiency of urea, DNB, BNA and the solid solution was done with fundamental of Nd:YAG laser (1064 nm).
