Abstract : Surface active diacetylene where the electronic structure of the sidegroups inductively couple with the electronic structure of the polymerized backbone has been synthesized. The fully polymerized Langmuir-Blodgett monolayers are expected to have novel nonlinear optical properties. This research is being pursued in light of significant theoretical and experimental findings established for single crystalline polydiacetylenes. In the Polydiacetylenes that are being investigated, the electronic structure of the sidegroup renormalizes the electronic structure of the backbone.
