FTIR Spectroscopic and XRD study of cobalt levo-tartrate crystals


H. O. Jethva

Several metallic tartrates deserve special attention due to their various applications. In the present study, cobalt levo-tartrate crystals were grown using silica hydro-gel as growth medium. Spherulitic reddish crystals were obtained. The crystals were characterized by FTIR spectroscopy and powder XRD. The FTIR spectrum revealed the presence of O-H, C-H, C-O and C=O functional groups. The powder XRD study suggested that the crystals belong to orthorhombic system.
