we have illustrated the strategies developed to achieve inorganic-organic hybrid compounds with technologically important physical properties. A series of target inorganic-organic hybrid compounds have been accomplished by incorporating the functional organic components (with a large hyperpolarizability and luminophore Schiff base cation) into the highly polarizable one-dimensional (1-D) iodoplumbate chain network. The effect of substituent features in the phenyl ring of the Schiff base cation on its molecular conformation as well as the crystal packing structure of the hybrid compound will be discussed and the multiple physical properties (ferroelectricity, NLO and multiple band emission) will also be mentioned.
