Abstract

The synthesis of three push-pull cationic dyes is reported here together with a photophysical study carried out by stationary and ultrafast spectroscopies. The hyperpolarizability (β) values of the three molecules have been estimated through a simple solvatochromic method based on conventional, low-cost equipment, which had been tested previously with success in our laboratory. The investigated pyridinium salts showing strong negative solvatochromism bear the same piperidine ring as a strong electron-donor group and the same thiophenes as electron-rich π-linkers, but differ in terms of the N-substituent on the electron-acceptor pyridinium unit, namely N-methyl in compound A, N-pyrimidin-2yl in B and N-2,4-dinitrophenyl in C. The derived β values were found to increase (in the order A
