Growth of Cadmium Tartrate crystals by gel technique 

By N. S. Patil, P. A. Chaudhari and D. S. Bhavsar  


Cadmium Tartrate crystals were grown by simple gel technique using single diffusion method. The optimum conditions were established by varying various parameters such as pH, concentration, setting time, ageing time and concentration of reactants of gel solution. Crystals having different morphology & habits were obtained. Prismatic dendritic crystals of Cadmium Tartrate & prismatic diamond shape shining & yellowish coloured single crystal were obtained. Some of them were transparent & some of transluscent & few others were opaque. The crystals were characterized using XRD, FT-IR & UV.
