Abstract

A very diversified family of 2,5-dihydrofuran derivative was synthesized as a new class of tunable electron acceptors using single-mode focused microwave irradiation. As such, a high poling efficiency and very large r33 values were demonstrated using one of the CF3-TCF-based chromophores in PMMA and a high-temperature polyquinoline (PQ-100). In addition, an excellent long-term temporal stability was also demonstrated in the PQ guest/host system.
