Calcium oxalate monohydrate (COM), a urinary stone has been formed by single diffusion gel technique. The grown crystal is analyzed by Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). The spectrum reveals various vibrational modes characterizing particular functional group. The investigation confirms the existence of oxalate group and water molecule in COM .
