Abstract: The synthesis of an organic molecule, 4-(4�-cyanophenylazo) phenoxyundecanoyl chloride, with possible NLO active properties was completed. The molecule followed the D-n-A configuration, which included an azobenzene chromophore as the conjugate n bridge. There were three intermediate steps in the synthetic scheme including the formation of the cyano dye itself. Different variations were explored in order to obtain a decent product yield on all steps. In order to attach the long alkyl chain of 11-bromoundecanoic acid to the azo dye, it was necessary to protect the COOH of 11-bromoundecanoic acid by initially forming a methyl ester. Once the azo dye had been attached, the remaining reactions involving the formation of a carboxylic acid and an acid chloride were facile. All products and intermediates were verified using 1H NMR, 13C NMR, and IR spectroscopy. An overall yield of 9% was recorded. The final product was sent to Pomona College to be made into multilayer thin films using the polyelectrolyte layer-by-layer chemisorption.
