Bisfunctionalized Ferrocene based NLO-phores were prepared. On cyclopentadienyl Cp ring was modified with a Beta-alpha-cyanoacrylate group and the other with a hydroxymethyl moiety. The ferrocene complex was placed in a polymethyl methacrylate matrix and subjected to corona onset poling. The polymer solutions exhibited SHG activity. The ferrocene complex was also melt cast polymerized to afford a polymer of unknown structure. The ferrocene system was modified with methacryloyl chloride and then successfully copolymerized with methyl methacrylate. A single-crystal X-ray diffraction study on a ferrocene NLO-phore is reported.
