We demonstrate the growth of two different crystals such as glycine and glycine oxalate (GOA) by slow evaporation method. We investigated the physical properties of these crystals using different experimental methods. From the single crystal X-ray diffraction, the formation and type of crystalline structures is determined. Thermal stability of the crystals is determined using the thermo gravimetric and differential thermal analyses (TGA/DTA). TGA/DTA measurements showed that thermal stability of glycine crystals is slightly greater than that of GOA crystals. Z-scan technique suggested that GOA crystals are found to be suitable candidate for optical limiting applications.
