The single crystals of organic nonlinear optical material, benzoyl glycine were grown by the solvent evaporation technique using N,N-dimethyl formamide as solvent. Single crystals of size 20 × 10 × 5 mm3 were obtained. The UV-VIS spectrum shows a cut-off wavelength less than 300 nm. The grown crystals were characterized by X-ray powder diffraction, IR, NMR and mass spectroscopy. The second-harmonic generation efficiency in these crystals is found to be 1.5 times higher than that in KDP.
