Phase-Tunable Synthesis of Monodisperse YPO4:Ln3+ (Ln = Ce, Eu, Tb) Micro/Nanocrystals via Topotactic Transformation Route with Multicolor Luminescence Properties.


A novel aqueous-based and phase-selected synthetic strategy toward YPO4:Ln3+ (Ln = Ce, Eu, Tb) micro/nanocrystals was developed by selecting specific precursors whose structure topotactically matches with the target ones. It was found that layered yttrium hydroxide (LYH) induced the formation of hexagonal-phased h-YPO4·0.8H2O with the crystalline… (More)
