1-Hydroxyurea Hydrate an intriguing new organic material for frequency conversion has been grown by slow evaporation solution growth technique at room temperature. Their structural and physicochemical properties were characterized by X-ray powder diffraction, Dielectric studies, UV-Vis spectra and Hardness studies. The crystal belongs monoclinic symmetry with the space group P21/c, a well-known noncentrosymmetric space group thus satisfying the requirements for second-order NLO activity. The material has a wide transparency in the entire visible region. It is found that the cutoff wavelength lies in the UV region. The mechanical response of the crystal has been studied using Vickers microhardness technique. Key words: Crystal Growth, Dielectric studies, UV-Vis studies, Hardness studies.

The recrystallized salt was the charge material for the flexibility of molecular design, which we need for applications growth of 1-hydroxyurea hydrate. To grow bulk crystals from with using suitable donor and acceptor. Organic crystals are solution by slow evaporation technique, it is desirable to select having some special properties of large optical nonlinearity[4- a solvent in which it is moderately soluble.

constant of a geometrical factor for the diamond pyramid. Fig. 4 shows the variation of mechanical behaviour of 1- hydroxyurea hydrate with applied load. In ideal circumstance the hardness value should be independent of applied load. But in practice the load dependence is observed. As the load is increased there is steep fall in hardness. The decrease of microhardness with increasing load is in agreement with normal indentation size effect (ISE) as observed by others.The decrease of microhardness in 1-hydroxyurea hydrate crystal is attributed to certain type of impurities incorporated into the lattice.

literature.The chemical structure of 1-hydroxyurea hydrate capacitance, C, and tan d, were obtained using a computer controlled LCR HiTester (HIOKI,3532-50) for different frequencies in the range100Hz–1MHz. The dielectric constant[9-10] of a material is generally composed of four types of contributions, viz. ionic, electronic, orientational and space charge polarizations. All of these may be active at low frequencies. The nature of variations of dielectric constant with frequency and temperature indicates the type of contributions that are present in them. The dipolar orientational effect can be seen in some materials at high frequencies and ionic and electronic polarizations below 103 Hz. The large value of εr at low frequency and at low temperature is due to the presence of space charge polarization, which depends on the purity and perfection of the Fig. 3.

hydroxyurea hydrate crystal. The dielectric constant is a takes place at a wavelength of 198 nm. This absorbance maximum at low frequency and decreases with increasing of maximum at 198 nm was assigned to -* transition and may frequency for the crystals. The increase in the dielectric be attributed to the excitation in the C=O group. The absence constant at low frequency is attributed to space-charge of the absorption in the visible region is the necessity for this compound as it is to be exploited for NLO applications in the room temperature. Conclusion

Good quality single crystals of 1-hydroxyurea hydrate were grown by slow evaporation solution growth technique. The X- ray diffraction revealed the crystallization of material in transparency also adds to the possible application of the material is the field of nonlinear optics. The results of optical transparency are encouraging. Moreover, its lower cutoff wavelength with wide optical transparency window in the visible region makes this material suitable for extensive investigations. These crystals have very good characteristics for fabrication and the results of optical transparency in suggesting the material with potential applications in nonlinear optics. Fig. 5.
