Paper Abstract

The values of the second-order polarizability of twenty- three derivatives from coumarin were calculated with quantum chemistry program (CNDO/S-CI). 7-hydroxyl-4-methylcumarin was artificially synthesized, and its powder appeared to be particularly effective in second harmonic generation. The single crystal of this compound was grown by solvent evaporation. It is suggested that 7-hydroxyl-4-methylcumarin be an organic high-quality material of double frequency.
