A novel nonlinear optical metal-organic Zinc borate - d(1-malate) (ZBdM) single crystal was grown from aqueous solution by slow evaporation technique. The as grown ZBdM single crystal was subjected to solubility, photoconductivity, NLO Test, FTIR, UV-vis-NIR and Impedance studies. The photoconductivity study reveals the positive photo conducting nature of the sample. The various functional groups in the crystalline molecule were identified by FTIR analysis. The cut off wavelength of the crystal was found to be 225 nm from Ultra-Violet-visible-near infrared (UV-vis-NIR) spectral study. The Dc electrical conductivity of the sample was found to be 1.252x10-4mho m-1. Kurtz-Perry test confirms the emission of green radiation from the sample thus exhibiting second harmonic generation (SHG).
