A novel T-type polyurethane 7 containing 1-(2,5-dioxyphenyl)-2-(5-(1,2,2-tricyanovinyl)-2-thienyl)ethenes as NLO chromophores, which constitute part of the polymer backbone, was prepared. Polyurethane 7 is soluble in common organic solvents such as DMF and DMSO. It shows a thermal stability up to 270 oC from TGA thermogram with Tg value obtained from DSC thermogram near 155 oC. The second harmonic generation (SHG) coefficient (d33) of poled polymer film at 1560 nm fundamental wavelength is 3.56 × 10‒9 esu. Polymer 7 exhibits a thermal stability even at 5 oC higher than Tg, and no significant SHG decay is observed below 160 oC, which is acceptable for nonlinear optical device applications.
