Abstract: Relatively large sized colourless transparent crystals of cadmium mercury tetrathiocyanate (CMTC) are grown at near ambient temperature using silica gel in straight test tubes in about one week time. Single crystal XRD studies have confirmed the structure of the grown crystals as tetragonal. The grown crystals are characterized by UV-Vis-NIR and FTIR studies. Kurtz powder technique is employed to confirm their non-linear optic (NLO) behaviour. Thermal analysis proves that CMTC is stable up to 200oC. Microhardness studies reveal that CMTC possesses high Vicker’s hardness value. The dielectric measurement is carried out at room temperature and the variation of ε΄ with frequency has been studied.
