Abstract

Boron-subphthalocyanines (SubPcs)—cone-shaped 14-π electron aromatic macrocycles—are lower phthalocyanine analogues which consist of three isoindole units N-fused around a central boron atom which fourth valency is occupied by an axial ligand. SubPcs have been shown to possess very interesting features for NLO. Although they present a permanent dipole moment along the boron-axial substituent axis, their optical response is essentially associated to charge transfer inside the macrocycle π-surface. Moreover, due to the C3v symmetry of the SubPc core, its NLO behavior is mostly octupolar. It will be shown that the application to SubPcs of the design criteria that have been successful in phthalocyanines and porphyrins led to high-performance second-harmonic generators

    According to the expertise of the authors of this chapter in subphthalocyanine synthesis, SubPc 17 is probably fairly unstable in ethanol. Most probably, the measured χ(3) corresponds to the trineopentyloxi-ethyloxisubphthalocyanine or any other non-subphthalocyanine decomposition product. The UV-vis presented in the article does not show any of the characteristic features of SubPcsGoogle Scholar
