Since the discovery of nonlinear effects, both the theory and
measurement techniques have been developed significantly,
especially since the invention of the laser. However,
structure-NLO property relationships for organometallics as well
as their NLO mechanisms are far less explored than those of
organic molecules and inorganic salts. The greater flexibility
and exceptionally large NLO responses of organometallic compounds
attracts chemists to this field.
