What is it about?

A potential crystal for nonlinear optical application and monomer namely 1-(2,4-dichloro-phenyl-2yl)-3-(4-hydroxyphenyl)prop-2-en-1-one (DHPP) was synthesized and grown by slow evaporation technique. The functional groups present in the compound were identified by FTIR spectrum. The optical cut-off wavelength and structural characteristics were analyzed using UV-Vis-NIR spectra and single crystal x-ray diffractometer. The crystal belongs to non centrosymmetric orthorhombic system with space group Pna21 with cell parameters a= 18.015(3) Å, b= 18.218(3)Å, c= 4.1029(6) Å, Z=4 and V= 1346.56Å3. Thermal studies show that the crystal is stable up to 250 0C implying good processability.

Why is it important?

These compounds could be used for many applications like nonlinear optical materials, corrosion inhibitors or as reactive intermediates.
