Good optical quality single crystals of glycine sodium nitrate (GSN) were grown by slow evaporation technique from its aqueous solution at room temperature. Single crystal X-ray diffraction (XRD) studies revealed the presence of monoclinic structure with space group Cc, and Fourier transform infrared transmission (FTIR) has confirmed the presence of the functional groups present in the single crystal system. The thermal stability of the crystal was studied by Thermogravimetric/Differential Thermal Analyzer (TG/DTA). Ultraviolet (UV) spectrum showed no significant absorption in the region 200-2000 nm suggesting the optical transparency of the grown crystals.
