X-ray powder diffraction data for the binary system ammonium dihydrogen phosphate with boric acid is studied and it is inferred that the binary belongs to tetragonal system and forms a substitutional solid phase. On the basis of the space group the binary is predicted to exhibit electrooptic property along with piezoelectric and electrostriction properties. It is proposed that the phosphorus atom of ammonium dihydrogen phosphate is substituted by the boron atom of boric acid.
