We describe the syntheses, the 1H NMR studies in CD3OD and D2O as solvent, the X-ray characterization, and the luminescence properties in D2O solution of the two complexes Eu.1 and Er.1, where 1 is a dipartite ligand that includes (i) a 1,4,7,10-tetraazacyclododecane-1,4,7-triacetic acid (DO3A) unit serving as hosting site for the metal center; and (ii) a phenanthroline unit which plays the role of light antenna for the sensitization process of the metal centered luminescence.
