The semi organic Non-linear crystal of [(E)-benzylideneamino] thiourea was prepared by adopting slow evaporation solution growth technique. The, induction period, interfacial energy and nucleation parameters of the material was determined for the solvents methanol,1:1 methanol and 1:2 methanol. The resulting crystals were subjected to UV-Visible spectral study to determine its optical transparency, FT-IR Spectral study to determine its purity. Thermal studies support the thermal stability of the material. Further the material was found to be about 5.1 time SHG efficient than that of potassium dehydrogenate ortho phosphate. These studies reveals the application oriented properties of the material-[(E)-benzylideneamino] thiourea.
