ABSTRACT The dielectric and thermal analysis of copper doped Magnesium Hydrogen Maleate
Hexahydrate single crystals are studied for the first time. The dielectric constant, loss
tangent, a.c. conductivity and a.c. activation energy were measured with variation of
frequency in the range 50 Hz to 1 MHz. Dielectric studies reveal that the present crystal
under investigation show good optical quality. The melting point and final compound after
decomposition were determined using the DTA/TG analysis.
