Growth features of nickel doped potassium hydrogen tartrate single crystals in silica hydro gelAuthor(s): M.K.Gondalia*, R.N.Patel
The growth of nickel potassium tartrate in silica hydro gel at ambient temperature has been successfully carried out. The effect of various parameters: like gel pH, gel ageing and concentration of reactants on the growth of these crystals have been studied. The grown crystals are characterized by chemical analysis, X-ray powder diffractometry and infrared spectrometry. The results of these observations have been described and discussed.
