Synthesis, Growth and Characterisation of Novel Semiorganic Material: Lithium Boro-Succinate
Single crystal of lithium boro-succinate (LiBS), a semiorganic nonlinear optical material has been grown by slow evaporation method at ambient temperature. The lattice parameter and crystal structure were analysed by powder XRD. The optical transmission spectra revealed optical properties of the grown crystal. FTIR studies confirm the presence of functional group. TGA/DSC studies were carried to find the melting point of the material. Micro hardness has been estimated from LiBS crystal at different forces and various constants were determined by Vickers hardness test.
