New methacrylic monomers, their polymers with benzylidene fragment were synthesized. Structures of all compounds were determined by HNMR, UV- spectroscopies. The third order nonlinear optical properties of oxazolone, thiazolidinone and thiohydantoin containing compounds were investigated in solutions using degenerate four wave mixing (DFWM) method at 532 nm.
