Recent improvements to SrAl2O4:Eu2+, Dy3+ phosphors have enabled the use of luminescent hosts with a stable crystal structure and high physical and chemical stability, thus overcoming the bottleneck in the applicability of ZnS:Cu phosphors. However, enhancement of afterglow lifetime and brightness in SrAl2O4:Eu2+, Dy3+ phosphors remains a challenging task.… (More)
We report methodological advances that enhance the phosphorescence efficiency of a blue-emitting calcium aluminate phosphor (CaAl2O4: Eu2+, Nd3+). The investigation of long-persistence blue-emitting phosphors is highly desirable due to their promising applications, such as white LEDs; however, the development of highly efficient blue-emitting phosphors is… (More)
In the title compound, C12H11NO, the pyridine and phenyl rings are inclined to each other by 71.42 (10)°. In the crystal, O-H⋯N hydrogen bonds link the mol-ecules into helical chains extending along the c-axis direction.
The title compound, C9H9N3O2S, is a monoclinic (C2/c) polymorph of the previously reported triclinic structure [Kang (2013 ▶). Acta Cryst. E69, o1327]. The mol-ecule is almost planar with an r.m.s. deviation of 0.069 Å from the mean plane of all non-H atoms. The benzoyl and terminal thio-urea fragments adopt a transoid conformation with respect to the… (More)
