This contribution details the synthesis and chemical/physical characterization of a series of unconventional twisted pi-electron system electro-optic (EO) chromophores. Crystallographic analysis of these chromophores reveals large ring-ring dihedral twist angles (80-89 degrees) and a highly charge-separated zwitterionic structure dominating the ground(More)
A series of 4-X-1-methylpyridinium cationic nonlinear optical (NLO) chromophores (X = (E)-CH=CHC(6)H(5); (E)-CH=CHC(6)H(4)-4'-C(CH(3))(3); (E)-CH=CHC(6)H(4)-4'-N(CH(3))(2); (E)-CH=CHC(6)H(4)-4'-N(C(4)H(9))(2); (E,E)-(CH=CH)(2)C(6)H(4)-4'-N(CH(3))(2)) with various organic (CF(3)SO(3)(-), p-CH(3)C(6)H(4)SO(3)(-)), inorganic (I(-), ClO(4)(-), SCN(-),(More)
New Co(II) members of the family of multifunctional materials of general formula [DAMS](4)[M(2)Co(C(2)O(4))(6)]·2DAMBA·2H(2)O (M(III) = Rh, Fe, Cr; DAMBA = para-dimethylaminobenzaldehyde and [DAMS(+)] = trans-4-(4-dimethylaminostyryl)-1-methylpyridinium) have been isolated and characterized. Such new hybrid mixed metal oxalates are isostructural with the(More)
The dipolar and octupolar contributions of the second order nonlinear optical properties of [(4'-(C(6)H(4)-p-D)-2,2':6',2''-terpyridine)-Ru-(4'-(C(6)H(4)-p-A)-2,2':6',2''-terpyridine)]Y(2) heteroleptic complexes (D and A are donor and acceptor groups, respectively), and related free terpyridines and homoleptic complexes, have been obtained by means of a(More)
Appropriate functionalization of the cyclometalated ligand, L, and the choice of the ancillary ligand, X, allows the dipolar second-order nonlinear optical response of luminescent [PtLX] complexes--in which L is an N^C^N-coordinated 1,3-di(2-pyridyl)benzene ligand and X is a monodentate halide or acetylide ligand--to be controlled. The complementary use of(More)
