Most of the authors preliminary work has employed the diol N,N-Di-(2-hydroxyethyl)-p-nitroaniline (R1 = p-nitrophenyl). The synthesis of this material and polyurethane films derived from it as well as second harmonic generation efficiencies are discussed. It is shown that the SHG maximum near 55° corresponds to a value roughly twice that of the first Maker fringe of quartz. This is a respectable value obtained from a poled polymer film which took only a few minutes to fabricate from the corresponding monomers.
