ZnS Nanoparticles Sensitize Luminescence of Capping-Ligand-Bound Lanthanide Ions.


2,6-Bis(diethylamide)-4-oxo(3-thiopropane)pyridine (BDP) and 2,6-bis(methyl ester)-4-oxo(3-thiopropane)pyridine (BMP) were synthesized. These compounds chelated LnIII ions and sensitized their emission. The 3:1 complexes of BDP displayed efficiencies of 18% and 12% for EuIII and TbIII, respectively. The analogous complexes of BMP had efficiencies of 23% and… (More)
