A series of anilinium cations with various functional groups as substituents has been chosen to form salts with l-tartaric acid and d-dibenzoyl tartaric acid. The salts show second harmonic generation activities comparable to urea. The tartrate frameworks provide conformationally rigid hydrogen bonded frameworks for the incorporation of these cations. The SHG activity of these salts appear to depend upon the type of framework provided by the tartrate anions, which in turn decides the orientation of the cations.
