Abstract: The synthesis and growth of non-linear optical crystal, copper cobalt thiocyanate, CuCo(SCN)4 (CCTC) single crystals have been successfully carried out by slow evaporation technique using de-ionized water as solvent. The grown crystal is characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis, FTIR analysis, optical transmission spectral analysis and thermal analysis. The lower cut off wavelength of CCTC crystal occurs at 380 nm. The CCTC crystal exhibits good physicochemical stability up to 199.5°C. Test for second harmonic generation by the crystals of CCTC, using the method of Kurtz and Perry shows positive results.
