AbstractA simple method for the preparation of a suite of new nonlinear optical chromophores is presented. Using this methodology we have been able to prepare chromophores with azo linkers and a variety of acceptor systems in high yields and without the need for chromatography. The compounds are highly solvatochromic, and the predicted values of their NLO response suggest they are candidates for further development. © 2009 American Institute of Physics.
