Nonlinear optical material of sodium p-nitrophenolate dihydrate was synthesized by employing the technique of controlled evaporation and the effect of temperature on growth morphology was investigated. Single crystal XRD analysis confirms that the crystals with different morphologies have the same lattice parameters. The high-resolution X-ray diffraction curves recorded by a multicrystal X-ray diffractometer revealed the presence of very low angle tilt boundaries. The green emission band at 524 nm is due to the existence of defects on the crystal which corroborated with HRXRD studies. The wide band gap of the SPND crystals confirms the large transmittance in the visible region.
