    • Abstract


      Single crystal growth of pure and copper-doped iron tartrate crystals bearing composition Cu$_{x}$ Fe$_{(1−x)}$ C4H4O6 · $n$H2O, where $x = 0, 0.07, 0.06, 0.05, 0.04, 0.03$, is achieved using gel technique. The elemental analysis has been done using energy-dispersive X-ray analysis (EDAX) spectrum. The characterization studies such as Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), powder X-ray diffraction (XRD), magnetic analysis and thermal analysis have been done for crystals with $x = 0$ for pure iron tartrate and with $x = 0.05$ for copper-mixed iron tartrate crystals. A detailed comparison has been made between pure and doped crystals.
