A series of dipolar (1), bis-dipolar (2), and octupolar molecules (3) containing 1, 2, and 6 dipolar units within a molecule has been synthesized and their hyperpolarizabilities were analyzed. The βHRS increases in the order, 1 < 2 < 3. The 'monomeric' βzzz increases by approximately twofold from 1 to 2, whereas βzzz of 2 and βxxx of 3 are similar. Noteworthy is the parallel increase in the hyperpolarizability tensor with the λmax.
