Abstract. SeMnHPO4 (selenium manganese hydrogen phosphate) crystals are grown in agar-agar medium at various concentrations of ortho-phosphoric acid and supernatant solutions in single diffusion process. The pH plays an important role in the formation of SeMnHP crystals. The characterizations of grown crystals are studied by FTIR, SEM, XRD and etching. The results are discussed and compared with the reported literature.
