The equilibrium geometry of cyclic dimer of zinc porphyrin containing C 60 has been studied by semi-empirical AM1 and PM3 methods. The electronic spectrum and the third-order nonlinear polarizability of this supramolecule were examined by ZINDO-SOS method. At different external field frequencies, the range of calculated third-order nonlinear polarizability is from 48.23 × 10 -34 to 65.15 × 10 -34 esu. The supramolecule would potentially be employed as a kind of nonlinear optical material.
