Synthesis and characterization of a class of chiral nonlinear optical organic materials viz. pyrrolo[1 with chiral molecular structure are presented. Both single crystals and crystalline thin films of la have been grown. Structural parameters have been determined by X-ray diffraction. Linear and nonlinear optical properties of the crystals have been analyzed. The transparency range extends into the near-UV-region. The nonlinear coefficients djjk have been measured by second harmonic generation (SHG) using the Makerfringe and phase match techniques.
