Paper Abstract

The title compound has been synthesized by reaction of ZnCl2, acetylacetone (acacH) and phenylthiourea (PhTU), and characterized by a variety of techniques. This compound is completely transparent in the visible region, and shows a powder SHG (second harmonic generation) effect as strong as 10 times that of KDP. X-ray single crystal structure analysis reveals that the molecule possesses a square pyramidal configuration around zinc ion. The molecules are aligned almost parallely in the lattice so that the geometrical superposition of the molecular dipole moment and the first hyperpolarizability ((beta) ) are favorably enhanced, giving rise to a relatively strong macroscopic SHG effect.
