Lanthanide complexes with aromatic o-phosphorylated ligands: synthesis, structure elucidation and photophysical properties

Lanthanide complexes LnL3 (Ln = Sm, Eu, Tb, Dy, Tm, Yb, Lu) with aromatic o-phosphorylated ligands (HL1 and HL2) have been synthesized and identified. Their molecular structure was proposed on the basis of a new complex approach, including DFT calculations, Sparkle/PM3 modelling, EXAFS spectroscopy and luminescent probing. The photophysical properties of all of the complexes were investigated in detail to obtain a deeper insight into the energy transfer processes.
