NLO properties of new trans 2-(thiophen-2-yl)vinyl heteroaromatic iodides

What is it about?

The promising non-linear optical (NLO) properties of this new family of chromophores, which can be further improved by the design of highly efficient systems exploiting the donor and acceptor properties of both heteroaromatic rings and substituents, make them suitable candidates for second harmonic generation imaging with interesting biological applications
