Abstract
We demonstrate experimentally that visible-visible sum-frequency generation in the bulk of a chiral liquid is observable near electronic resonant tran sitions. Although the process is electric dipole allowed. it is rather weak because the orientational average over molecules effectively reduces the b ulk chiral nonlinearity.
