AbstractThis work presents the nonlinear properties of six Sn(IV) Phthalocyanines. Three of the phthalocyanines are linked by an alkylthiol substituent and the rest are linked with a phenoxy substituent. For all six compounds non-linear optic analysis was carried out in four solvents: chloroform, toluene, dichloromethane, and tetrahydrofuran, and their differences were recorded. Calculation of the linear, singlet excited, triplet excited and two photon absorption cross-sections were also carried out and the results compared. To form a comparison the first order hyperpolarizabilities, DFT calculations were also performed and the results compared to see if the behaviour between the two properties can be predicted using DFT.
