Single crystals of thiosemicarbazide magnesium chloride (TSCMC) a semi organic nonlinear optical (NLO) material have been grown from aqueous solution by a slow evaporation technique. The grown crystals have been subjected to single crystal X-ray diffraction studies to identify of the structure. FTIR and optical transmission spectra reveal the optical properties of the grown crystals. The thermal behavior of TSCMC was investigated using the TG–DTA studies. Dielectric measurements were made over a wide range of frequencies for different temperatures.
The second harmonic generation (SHG) efficiency for the grown crystals was determined using the Kurtz powder technique.

Keywords: Single crystal growth, XRD, FTIR, Optical absorption spectrum, TG-DTA analysis, Dielectric studies, SHG
