In the present investigation, Calcium Cadmium Tartrate crystals were grown in silica gel at ambient temperature.
The doping effect of Calcium ion in Cadmium Chloride solution on the size and transparency of Cadmium Tartrate
crystal are presented in this paper. The crystals have been synthesized by controlled diffusion of Cadmium Chloride
into Gel with Tartaric acid at room temperature. The Calcium ions enhance the size of transparency of the doped
crystals. The optimum conditions were established by varying various parameters such as pH of gel solution, gel
concentration, gel setting time, concentration of reactants etc. Crystal having different morphology were obtained,
whitish semitransparent, star shaped, needle shaped crystal of Calcium-Cadmium Tartrate were obtained. The
crystal structure of the compound was confirmed by powder X-ray powder diffraction, scanning electron microscope
(SEM), and Energy Dispersive Analysis by X-ray (EDAX).
