In this paper, a new application of the hyper-Rayleigh scattering technique in determining multiple binding constants of a small molecule like bilirubin to a macromolecule like the protein human serum albumin has been demonstrated. Human serum albumin has two binding sites for bilirubin, and the binding constants have been measured by carrying out a second harmonic titration of the protein against bilirubin and vice versa. The measured binding constants $K_1 = 1.5 \pm 0.43 \times 10^7 M^-^1$ and $K_2 = 1.01 \pm 0.16 \times 10^6 M^-^1$ agree well with the reported values obtained by other methods.
