In the present investigation, single crystals of manganese tartrate crystals were grown by using silica gel as a growth medium. These single crystals were grown by simple gel technique using diffusion method. The optimum growth conditions were optimized by varying various parameters viz., pH of the gel solution, gel concentration, gel setting time, concentration of the reactance, growth period and temperature for these crystals. The shiny white brownish coloured and spherulitic morphology crystals grown within silica gel column were obtained. Crystals having different morphologies were obtained with a maximum size of 5.5mm × 5.2mm × 3.5mm. The grown crystals are characterized by FTIR, SEM and EDAX. The functional groups present in the crystals were identified by using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) analysis which shows that the presence of O=H, C=O, C-O, C-H and metal-oxygen bonds. The scanning electron microscope (SEM) study reveals that the morphology of the crystal having orthorhombic structures. The analysis of EDAX has shown the presence of manganese and oxygen.
