In this research paper, an overview of polymorph γ-form glycine single crystal crystallization in the presence of 2-aminopyridine potassium chloride as an additive at an ambient temperature by slow evaporation solution growth technique (SEST) has been presented. FTIR and NMR studies confirm the presence of functional groups in the grown crystal. In the UV?Visible NIR optical absorption spectral studies from 200 nm to 900 nm, the observed 0% absorption with lower cutoff wave length at 240 nm and high band gap (5. 5eV) enabled enhanced linear optical properties . Powder XRD study confirms crystalline nature of the grown γ-glycine crystal. The single crystal XRD study shows that the grown crystal possesses hexagonal structure and belongs to space group P31 with the cell parameters a=7. 09 Å; b=7. 09; c=5. 52 Å; α = β = 90˚; and γ = 120˚. Thermal studies have been carried out to identify the elevated thermal stability and decomposition temperature of the grown sample. Dielectric studies of as grown γ-glycine crystal exhibit low dielectric constant at higher frequencies, which is most essential parameters for nonlinear optical applications. Enhanced SHG efficiency of the grown crystal was confirmed by the Kurtz powder technique using Nd:YAG laser and found 1. 6 times greater than that of inorganic standard potassium dihydrogen phosphate.
