An organic nonlinear optical material, namely glucuronic acid gamma-lactone or glucuronolactone, was crystallized from aqueous solution. Crystals of large dimensions and full morphology were obtained by slow-cooling method in a custom-built solution growth setup. CHN analysis and X-ray diffraction confirmed the phase formation in the grown crystal. High-resolution XRD studies followed by Rietveld refinement yielded accurate lattice parameters which compared well with the reported values. UV-Vis spectrum recorded for a b-plate of 2 mm thickness revealed the low UV-cutoff at 250 nm. Dielectric constant and dielectric loss were monitored as a function of frequency. Piezoelectric resonance peaks were observed in the range 0.2-1.5 MHz which are dependent on the plate thickness. The temperature dependence of the resonance peak frequency was studied. Piezoelectric coefficients were estimated by resonance-antiresonance method.
