Good quality prismatic crystals of industrially applicable corrosion inhibiting barium complex of 1,3,5-triazinane-2,4,6-trione have been grown by conventional gel method. The crystal structure, packing, and nature of bonds are revealed in the single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis. The crystal has a three-dimensional polymeric structure having a triclinic crystal system with the space group P-1. The powder X-ray diffraction analysis confirms its crystalline nature. The functional groups present in the crystal are identified by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. Elemental analysis confirms the stoichiometry of the elements present in the complex. Thermogravimetric analysis and differential thermal analysis reveal its good thermal stability. The optical properties like band gap, refractive index and extinction coefficient are evaluated from the UV–visible spectral analysis. The singular property of the material, corrosion inhibition efficiency achieved by the adsorption of the sample molecules is determined by the weight loss method.
