Paper Abstract

The synthesis and characterization of a new class of dipolar inorganic coordination polymers, as well as the examination of the third-order NLO properties of several organometallic acetylide complexes, are discussed. The dipolar materials were prepared for Cr, Mn, and Fe. The crystal structure of two Mn complexes demonstrate that coordination polymers are being formed in the solid-state. Solution third harmonic generation (1907 yields 636 nm) was used to determine the molecular hyperpolarizibilities ((gamma) ) for several organometallic halide and acetylide complexes. The values of (gamma) range from <3 X 10-36 to 50 X 10-36 esu.
