Single aerosol particles of ethylene glycol and oleic acid are vaporized on a heater at temperatures between 500 and 700 K, and the resulting vapor plume is ionized by a 10.5-eV vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) laser. The mass spectra are compared to those obtained by CO2 laser vaporization followed by VUV laser ionization. The relative intensities of the parent(More)
An extensive series of blue-luminescent iridium(III) complexes has been prepared containing two phenylpyridine-type ligands and one ligand containing two pyrazolylpyridine units, of which one is bound to Ir(III) and the second is pendant. Attachment of {Ln(hfac)(3)} (Ln = Eu, Gd; hfac = anion of 1,1,1,5,5,5,-hexafluoropentanedione) to the second(More)
Sensitised luminescence from lanthanide complexes offers many potential advantages in imaging and assay, particularly when coupled with time-gating protocols that can be used to gate out background signal. In this perspective, we discuss the routes by which lanthanide arrays and polymetallic d-f hybrids can be prepared by conventional synthesis and(More)
We have used time-resolved luminescence methods to study rates of photoinduced energy transfer (PEnT) from [M(bipy)3]2+ (M=Ru, Os) chromophores to Ln(III) ions with low-energy f-f states (Ln=Yb, Nd, Er) in d-f dyads in which the metal fragments are separated by a saturated -CH2CH2- spacer, a p-C6H4 spacer, or a p-(C6H4)2 spacer. The finding that d-->f PEnT(More)
An isophthalate-bearing DOTA monoamide derivative has been synthesised and used to prepare a family of lanthanide complexes. Luminescence and NMR studies in solution show that the predominant form of the complexes in solution is a mono-capped square antiprism about the lanthanide centre, in which a solvent molecule occupies the ninth coordination site. The(More)

A series of blue-luminescent Ir(III) complexes with a pendant binding site for lanthanide(III) ions has been synthesized and used to prepare Ir(III)/Ln(III) dyads (Ln = Eu, Tb, Gd). Photophysical studies were used to establish mechanisms of Ir→Ln (Ln = Tb, Eu) energy-transfer. In the Ir/Gd dyads, where direct Ir→Gd energy-transfer is not possible,(More)
Heteronuclear tetrametallic lanthanide complexes have been synthesized from stable complexes by diazotization and azo-compound formation. Luminescence spectroscopy has been used to show that the complexes used as building blocks are stable under the reaction conditions.
A study of the anion-binding properties of three structurally related lanthanide complexes, which all contain chemically identical anion-binding motifs, has revealed dramatic differences in their anion affinity. These arise as a consequence of changes in the substitution pattern on the periphery of the molecule, at a substantial distance from the binding(More)
