Abstract:

A brief overview of organometallic X2 nonlinear optical NLO polymers is presented. The synthesis of new ferrocene NLO-phores is presented along with their copolymerization with methyl methacrylate to generate organometallic NLO-polymers NLOPs. A new class of organometallic NLO-phores were synthesized by condensation of ferrocene-carboxaldehyde with fluorene compounds. The fluorenyl-ferrocene NLO-phores displayed interesting linear optical properties and reactivity. NLO-spectroscopy was employed to study the orientation and relaxation behavior of the new organometallic NLOPs and we report on these interesting results.
