Na3BaCl5·2H2O crystals were prepared by the slow evaporation of an aqueous solution of a mixture of sodium chloride and barium chloride in stoichiometric ratio. Crystals were found to possess platelet habit. Crystals were analysed by infrared spectrophotometry, thermogravimetry and X-ray diffraction. The appearance of bands due to stretching and bending modes of water molecules in the IR spectra showed that the grown crystals were hydrated. X-ray oscillation and Weissenberg photographs were used to measure the dimensions of the unit cell.
