Abstract: A single crystal of bis glycine maleate have been grown from aqueous solution by slow evaporation method by optimizing the growth parameters within a period of 45 days. From the x-ray diffraction the crystal was found to be crystallize in hexagonal structure with a=7.402, b=7.04, c= 5.48 A and ==90, =120.The functional group was confirmed in FTIR analysis. Values of work hardening coefficient were determined from micro hardness studies and confirmed that the grown crystals belong to the category of soft materials. The results have been discussed in detail.
