Lanthanide Luminescence in Visible-Light-Promoted Photochemical Reactions
This review briefly overviews the photochemical reactivity of SmII, EuII, and CeIII with visible light; the properties that influence the reactions of these ions; and the research that has been reported towards modulating their photochemical-relevant properties using visible light and coordination chemistry.

Structural Systematics of Lanthanide(III) Picrate Solvates: Neutral, Mononuclear Ln(pic)3(dimethylsulfoxide)3 Arrays
Adducts of dimethylsulfoxide, dmso = Me2SO, with lanthanide(iii) picrates (picrate = 2,4,6-trinitrophenoxide, pic) of stoichiometry Ln(pic)3·3dmso have been prepared and characterised byExpand


Characterization and Luminescence Properties of Lanthanide-Based Polynuclear Complexes Nanoaggregates.
The replacement of ethylene glycol by 2-hydroxybenzyl alcohol provides new nanoaggregates that present an antenna effect toward lanthanide ions that results in a significant enhancement of the luminescence properties of the aggregates and demonstrates the suitability of the strategy for obtaining highly tunable luminescent solutions.

Controlling the energy transfer via multi luminescent centers to achieve white light/tunable emissions in a single-phased X2-type Y2SiO5:Eu(3+),Bi(3+) phosphor for ultraviolet converted LEDs.
A promising candidate of a white light emitting X2-type Y2SiO5:Eu(3+),Bi(3+) phosphor, which can be excitable by UV light and address the problems of thermal instability, color aging or re- absorption by commixed phosphors in the coating of the devices. Expand
Efficient Tailoring of Upconversion Selectivity by Engineering Local Structure of Lanthanides in Na(x)REF(3+x) Nanocrystals.
The local structure induced upconversion emission from Er(3+) enhanced 9 times, and the CaF2 shell grown epitaxially over the nanocrystals further promoted the red emission by 450 times, which makes it superior as biomarkers for in vivo bioimaging. Expand
Expanding the Versatility of Dipicolinate-Based Luminescent Lanthanide Complexes: A Fast Method for Antenna Testing.
A dipicolinate (dpa)-based platform for the rapid testing of potential lanthanide-sensitizing antennae was developed; 4-methyl-7-O-alkylcoumarin-appended dpa could sensitize four lanthanides. TheExpand
Healable luminescent self-assembly supramolecular metallogels possessing lanthanide (Eu/Tb) dependent rheological and morphological properties.
The results demonstrate for the first time the crucial role the lanthanide ions play in the supramolecular polymerization process, and consequently in the self-healing properties of the corresponding gels, which are dictated by the same host-guest interactions. Expand
Influence of symmetry on the luminescence and radiative lifetime of nine-coordinate europium complexes.
The change of the symmetry from (a higher) C3 to (a lower) C1 alters the Luminescence spectrum, shortens the radiative lifetime, and increases the luminescence efficiency of the europium complexes. Expand
KINATEST-ID: a pipeline to develop phosphorylation-dependent terbium sensitizing kinase assays.
This strategy represents a pipeline for developing efficient and specific assays for virtually any tyrosine kinase that use HTS-compatible lanthanide-based detection and is amenable to high-throughput screening (HTS) applications. Expand
Kinetically Stable Lanthanide Complexes Displaying Exceptionally High Quantum Yields upon Long-Wavelength Excitation: Synthesis, Photophysical Properties, and Solution Speciation.
The behavior in solution upon variation of pH, studied by means of UV-vis absorption, emission, and NMR spectroscopies, reveals that the nature of the chromophore can give rise to pH-dependent behavior as a consequence of deprotonation adjacent to the carbonyl group. Expand
Luminescent Ce(III) Complexes as Stoichiometric and Catalytic Photoreductants for Halogen Atom Abstraction Reactions.
The strongly reducing metalloradical character of 1, 1-(i)Pr, and 1-Cy in their (2)A1 excited states afforded photochemical halogen atom abstraction reactions from sp(3) and sp(2) C-X (X = Cl, Br, I) bonds for the first time with a lanthanide cation. Expand
Luminescent properties of rare earth fully activated apatites, LiRE9(SiO4)6O2 (RE = Ce, Eu, and Tb): site selective crystal field effect.
These compounds may provide a platform for modeling a new phosphor and application in the solid-state lighting field and the splitting energies of the 6H and 4F Wycoff positions of LiRE9(SiO4)6O2 (RE = Ce, Eu, and Tb) compounds are calculated based on crystal field theory. Expand
