The first hyperpolarizabilities (β) of styrylpyrylium derivatives were systematically investigated by hyper-Rayleigh scattering experiments and semiempirical calculation in relation to their absorption. They were found to be potential second-order non-linear optical species covering the longer cutoff-wavelength range compared with the corresponding stilbazolium derivatives.
