L-histidinium methyl ester dihydrochloride C7H11N3O2.2HCl, a semi-organic nonlinear crystal of L-histidine family was grown by slow evaporation method at room temperature. Single crystal X-ray diffraction, FT-IR and FT-Raman spectral studies were employed on the grown crystal. The UV spectral study was performed to find the optical transmittance of the grown compound in the visible and UV regions. Powder technique of Kurtz and Perry was employed to analyze the harmonic generation efficiency of the L-histidinium methyl ester dihy drochloride single crystal. The dielectric study was performed and the parameters such as dielectric loss and dielectric constant were studied. AC conductivity studies were performed. The mechanical behaviour of the grown crystal was studied using Vickers microhardness tester and the results are discussed.
