Abstract

A luminescent bis(salicylaldiminato)zinc(II) Schiff-base complex, 1, is characterized by a concentration dependent second-order nonlinear optical response, related to the degree of aggregation of the complex in a dichloromethane solution. The formation of the monomeric adduct, by addition of a Lewis base, such as pyridine, to concentrated solutions of 1, leads to a switch-on of the quadratic hyperpolarizability. This represents an unprecedented mode of NLO switching in molecular materials.
