Transparent single crystals of diglycine cadmium chloride were grown by slow evaporation solution technique. To confirm the crystal structure, the grown crystals were subjected to single crystal as well as powder X-ray diffraction measurements and the structure was found to be monoclinic. The elemental analysis was carried out by energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy. The crystalline perfection of the grown crystal was assessed by high-resolution X-ray diffractometry and found that the crystal quality is fairly good. The optical study reveals that the grown crystal is highly transparent in the region 250-900 nm. Thermal studies reveal that the grown crystal is stable up to 245 A degrees C. The michrohardness analysis revealed that the grown crystal belongs to soft material category. The high dielectric constant (> 30) and low loss (< 0.01) value also confirms that the grown crystal is a good candidate for device fabrications.
