Solution Growth and Spectral Characterisation of 2-Bromo-4-Chloroacetophenone Crystals

The crystals of 2-bromo-4-chloroacetophenone (BCAP) were generated using a slow evaporation process at room temperature utilising carbon tetrachloride as the solvent. In this chapter, transparent, high-quality BCAP crystals were obtained using a cost-effective slow evaporation solution growth approach. This solvent was used to conduct solubility tests at various temperatures. The crystals were carefully collected and subjected to several characterisation investigations, including UV, FTIR, 1H NMR, TGA-DTA, and determining the unit cell dimensions. FTIR spectra were used to identify the various functional groups present in the produced crystal. To confirm the structure and purity of the produced crystals, 1H NMR and thermal investigations were performed on them. UV-Visible spectral analysis was used to determine the crystal’s transparency. BCAP’s solubility and metastable zone width in CCl4 have been investigated at various temperatures. The kurtz powder technique was used to assess the SHG effectiveness of the produced crystals.
