Abstract. We report on the preparation and spectroscopic studies of Nickel Malonate crystals. The sample is prepared by gel method and the conditions conducive for the growth are optimized. X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) pattern of the sample reveals the crystalline nature. The FTIR and FT Raman spectra of Nickel Malonate Crystals are recorded and the vibrational assignments with the possible explanations. Diffuse Reflectance Spectroscopy (DRS) was used to measure the band gap (Eg) of the material.
