The novel hydrogensquarate salt of 1,10-phenanthroline has been synthesized, isolated and structurally elucidated by single crystal X-ray diffraction. 1,10-Phenanthrolinium hydrogensquarate monohydrate (1) crystallizes in the non-centrosymmetric P2(1) space group. Its hydrogensquarate anions form a stable dimer by means of ((Sq))OHc...O=C((Sq)) hydrogen bonds with lengths of 2.509, 2.526, 2.510, and 2.524A. The solvent water molecule interacts with the anion dimers by means of strong and moderate hydrogen bonds HOHc...O=C((Sq)) with bond lengths of 2.782 and 2.845A, respectively. The 1,10-phenanthrolinium cation participates in NHc...OH(2) interactions with the water molecule (bond lengths of 2.810, 2.758, 2.779 and 2.760A). Surprisingly, compound contains four independent molecules in the unit cell. Optical properties were elucidated by means of linear-polarized solid-state IR-spectroscopy and UV-spectroscopy. In addition TGA, DSC, DTA data, positive and negative ESI mass spectra as well as (1)H- and (13)C NMR spectra are presented. Quantum chemical methods were used to calculate the electronic structure, vibrational data and electronic spectra as well as non-linear optical properties of neutral 1,10-phenanthroline and its protonated cation. Second harmonic generation measurements of the novel compound demonstrate that the compound possesses effective d coefficients of 1.9+/-0.5 pm V(-1), value that is about three times higher that of the low temperature form of potassium dideuterophosphate.

    • "The atomic coordinates and anisotropic temperature factors for non-hydrogen atoms were refined by the fullmatrix least square method using SHELXTL program package [19]. The FT-IR analysis of MMP was carried out to investigate the presence of functional groups and their vibrational modes [20]. The sample was prepared by mixing MMP with KBr pellet. "

    ABSTRACT: A new nonlinear optical (NLO) organic crystal 1-[4-({(E)-[4-(methylsulfanyl)phenyl]methylidene}amino)phenyl]ethanone (MMP) has been grown by slow evaporation technique at ambient temperature. The crystal structure of MMP was determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction. MMP crystallizes in non-centrosymmetric monoclinic system with space group P21. The FT-IR spectrum recorded for new crystal confirmed the presence of various functional groups in the material. MMP was found to be thermally stable up to 300 °C. The grown crystal was optically transparent in the wavelength range of 400–1100 nm. The second harmonic generation (SHG) efficiency of the crystal was measured by the classical powder technique using Nd:YAG laser and was found to be 4.13 times more efficient than reference material, urea. Third order nonlinear parameters were measured by employing the Z-scan technique. The laser damage threshold for MMP crystal was determined to be 4.26 GW/cm2. The Brewster angle technique was employed to measure the refractive index of the crystal and the values for green and red wavelengths were found to be 1.35 and 1.33, respectively. The dielectric and electrical measurements were carried out to study the different polarization mechanisms and conductivity of the crystal.

    ABSTRACT: The applicability of the reducing-difference procedure for the interpretation of the conventional IR-spectroscopy as successful scientific technique for the analysis of ancient and modern resins has been demonstrated. The new temperature tool for modeling of the ancient resin samples has also been shown. The experimental infrared data are supported by the hydride approach of HPLC-MS-MS with ES-ionisation.

    ABSTRACT: The effect of N7 protonation on the IR-spectroscopic characteristics in solid-state and aromatic character of 7-azaindole (7AI) are elucidated by means of linear-polarized IR-spectroscopy of oriented colloids in nematic host. A comparison between the data of neutral and protonated form of 7AI is done. The experimental data are supported by theoretical ab initio ones and experimental UV-spectroscopic measurements.
