The growth of sodium-cadmium formate NaCd(HCO2)3 single crystals by slow cooling method and their characterization by selective stching, X-ray diffraction and IR absorption spectral techniques are reported. The dislocation density in the crystals is found to be 5·102 - 2·103 cm-2. The compound crystallizes in orthorhombic unit cell with space group Pcca and Z = 4. The influence of metal ion on carboxylate stretching frequencies of polycrystalline samples is investigated and the possible correlations between spectra and structure considered.
