Curved fractal structures of pyridine-substituted β-diketone crystals

Author affiliations

Abstract

The crystals of 1-(4-methoxyphenyl)-3-(pyridin-2-yl)propane-1,3-dione exhibited rarely seen curved fractal structures under an optical microscope. Weak intermolecular interactions may result in dislocation during crystal growth and thus the irregular crystalline structures. The micrographs of the crystals were exploited for their artistic value and were transferred onto fabrics for application in fashion design.
