Abstract

D.c. elec. field induced 2nd-harmonic generation (EFISH) and 3rd-harmonic generation (THG) measurement results are reported on the intrinsic mol. hyperpolarizabilities of benzenes, stilbenes, and other arene derivs. Structure-property relations, as revealed by a comprehensive set of systematic measurements, are discussed. Issues concerning donor-acceptor strength; charge-transfer; transparency trade-off; conjugation planarity, length, and aromaticity; and heteroatom and side-group substitution effects are included.
