    Abstract

    A novel porphyrin derivative bearing one D-π-A-π-D pyrimidine chromophore at the periphery was designed, prepared, and studied using the Z-scan technique, the results showing that this compound exhibits enhanced nonlinear optical (NLO) absorption, refraction and optical limiting responses. The significant NLO properties can be ascribed to an effective combination of distinct nonlinear mechanisms.
