Growth and Characterization of Urea Adduct with m-Nitrobenzoic Acid,m-Nitroaniline, and p-Xylene Mixtures


The urea adduct with the guests of m-nitrobenzoic acid, m-nitroaniline and p-xylene mixtures by adductive crystallization was successfully grown by slow evaporation method. The single crystals obtained were non-hygroscopic and good in size. The crystal structure of the grown crystal has been determined, and it belongs to the monoclinic system with centrosymmertic space group P21/c. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopic studies were performed for the identification of guest components in the compound. The optical absorption spectrum has been recorded in the range 200-1100 nm. The mechanical behavior of the specimen was studied.
