The third-order nonlinear optical properties of fulleropyrrolidine, its salt, and their reduced forms are investigated (the reduced forms of the salt are shown here). Upon reduction, the response increases by up to, and sometimes more than, three orders of magnitude, giving values comparable to the largest ever reported.
