Octupolar merocyanine chromophores displayed very high molar absorption coefficients and high two-photon absorption cross-sections in the spectral range of interest for biological imaging. Changing the end heterocyclic moieties allowed the tuning of optical properties to approach the cyanine limit (i.e., polymethine state); this resulted in a red-shift of the linear absorption band, as well as in the rise of a two-photon band in the NIR region.
