The 2-amino-5-bromopyridinium trifluoroacetate (2A5BPTFA) crystal has been successfully grown by solvent slow evaporation technique. The grown crystal is found to non-centrosymmetric space group Pna21 with orthorhombic crystal system, which has been confirmed from single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis. The crystalline nature of the 2A5BPTFA is supported by powder X-ray diffraction technique. The molecular structure and different functional groups in 2A5BPTFA were confirmed by 1H, 13C NMR and FTIR spectral analyses. The intermolecular charge transfer that occurs in 2A5BPTFA molecule due to the presence of N–H⋯O and C–H⋯O hydrogen bondings have been studied by Hirshfeld surface analysis. From the UV–Vis absorption and photoluminescence spectra, the lower cutoff wavelength and emission peak are found to be 364 nm and 392 nm, respectively. In addition, the optical band gap of grown crystal has been calculated as 3.47 eV. Powder second harmonic generation efficiency of the crystal is observed to be 2.44 times greater than that of potassium dihydrogen phosphate. A positive photoconducting nature and low dielectric constant values have been obtained from photoconductivity and dielectric studies. From the Z-scan study reveals the self-defocusing nature of the grown crystal. Optical limiting study shows the optical limiting response of 2A5BPTFA crystal. In addition, the intermolecular charge transfer interactions and existence of N–H⋯O hydrogen bonding of the 2A5BPTFA have been confirmed by density functional theory methods and are discussed in detail. © 2019 Elsevier Ltd
