Crystals of sodium cinnamate were grown by slow evaporation of methanol solution at room temperature. Effect of sodium was studied by some analytical methods such as UV, FTIR and TG-DTA. The efficiency of SHG is more pronounced in the presence of sodium. Distribution of the electronic change were proved by the spectroscopic studies. Incorporation sodium results in increase of thermal stability ensuring the suitability of the grown crystals for NLO application upto 180°C.
