The nonlinear optical single crystal of NiHg(SCN)(4) has been successfully synthesized and good quality single crystal has been grown by slow cooling solution growth technique. The grown single crystals have been analyzed by different characterization analyses in order to know its suitability for various applications. The functional groups have been identified from the FTIR analysis. The TG/DTA analysis reveals the thermal behavior of NMTC. The optical behaviour was assessed by UV-Vis analysis and was found with no absorption in the entire visible region and it may be useful for second harmonic and other relevant applications. The relative second harmonic generation efficiency was evaluated by Kurtz powder technique and was found to be good in comparison with the standard inorganic potassium dihydrogen phosphate.
