Single crystals of pyridinium periodate were grown, and their physical properties were studied. Anomalies of the electric permittivity and birefringence were observed at TC1 = 321 K and TC2 = 211 K. These observations gave evidences for the existence of three phases denoted as I, II, and III. Hysteresis loops were observed both in phase II and III. Pyroelectric measurements showed two anomalies at TC1 and TC2 . The anomaly at TC1 is related to the transition between a para-and ferroelectric phase, and the anomaly at T cl to the transition between two ferroelectric phases.
