Comparative study of morphology and kinetic-thermodynamic parameters of gel-grown lead iron mixed levo-tartrate crystals
Pure and mixed crystals of metal tartrate compounds have varieties of applications in the different fields of science and technology. Lead tartrate finds application as additive in gasoline to prevent knocking in motors and iron tartrate finds application as one of the prominent species in apple juice. In the present study, lead-iron mixed levo-tartrate crystals were grown by single diffusion gel growth technique. Silica hydro-gel was the growth medium. Dendrite crystals were obtained at the gel-liquid interface. The crystals were characterized by Thermo gravimetric analysis and kinetic as well as thermodynamic parameters were evaluated for the different stage of decomposition.
