Terbium complexes are widely used as luminescent materials because of their bright green emission and sharp emission spectra and the independence of their emission wavelengths from the surrounding environment. The luminescence quantum yield (LQY), however, heavily depends on the surroundings, and an appropriate ligand design is indispensable. In this study, we focus on a Tb3+ complex coordinated by a 2,2'-bipyridine derivative ligand (L1), whose LQY is almost zero at room temperature [M…

Excited-State Dynamics of Crossing-Controlled Energy Transfer in Europium Complexes

Photosensitized energy transfer (EnT) phenomena occur frequently in a variety of photophysical and photochemical processes and have traditionally been treated with the donor–acceptor

The Enhanced Intramolecular Energy Transfer and Strengthened ff Luminescence of a Stable Helical Eu Complex in Ionic Liquids

Estimated rate constants for the energy relaxation pathway indicate that the energy transfer efficiency is enhanced in [BMIM][PF6] as a result of the suppression of molecular fluctuations in the ligands.

Alkyl chain elongation and acyl group effects in a series of Eu/Tb complexes with hexadentate π-electronic skeletons and their enhanced luminescence in solutions.

Five Eu complexes with long alkyl chain groups, abbreviated as EuLCx, were synthesized to evaluate their structural and luminescence properties in chloroform and potential energy surfaces were described by using density functional theory, suggesting the possibility of a 1 : 2 complex of Eu and the ligand as a main luminescent species in solutions.

Optically Active Helical Lanthanide Complexes: Storable Chiral Lewis Acidic Catalysts for Enantioselective Diels-Alder Reaction of Siloxydienes.

The lanthanide triflates and a series of hexadentate chiral ligands complexes synthesized showed Lewis acidity and catalyzed the enantioselective Diels-Alder reaction of electron-rich siloxydienes, and were stable enough to be stored at ambient temperature on a laboratory bench and retained theirLewis acidity even after a month.
