Two N-salicylidene-N'-acylhydrazines tridentate ligands containing heterocycles were prepared and utilized for the synthesis of mononuclear acentric complexes of Cu-II and Pd-II and pyridine serves as an additional ligand ((MLPy)-Py-x, M = metal, L-x = ligand). Characterization also includes single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis. These complexes show high second-order nonlinear optical activity (mu beta = 620 x 10(-48)esu for both (CuLPy)-Py-II and (PdLPy)-Py-II and mu beta = 1600 x 10(-48) and 1400 x 10(-48) esu for (CuLPy)-Py-I and (PdLPy)-Py-I, respectively, at incident wavelength of 1907 nm). The properties of polymers (PMLx) obtained by grafting poly(4-vinyl-pyridine) with fragments of the complexes are also reported. The polymers exhibit good thermal stability, high glass-transition temperatures and the absence of crystallinity. The second-order nonlinear optical (NLO) properties of thin, transparent poled films, prepared by spin coating and thermal corona poling, were investigated for some of the polymers. The value of the d(33) parameter was measured at 1064 and 1500 nm (i.e., with and without resonance contribute). In the latter case, the d33 values are 21 and 12 pm/V for PCuLII and PPdLII, respectively. A high time stability of the NLO properties of these materials was found.
