Abstract

Solid complexes of lanthanide picrates with a new podand-type ligand, 2,2′-[(1,2-phenylene)bis(oxy)]bis(N-benzylacetamide) (L) have been prepared and characterized by elemental analysis, conductivity measurements, IR, electronic and 1H NMR spectroscopies. The crystal and molecular structures of the complex NdL(Pic)3 have been determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The crystal structure shows that the Nd(III) ion is coordinated with four oxygen atoms of the ligand L and six oxygen atoms of three bidentate picrates. Furthermore, the NdL(Pic)3 complex units are linked by the intermolecular hydrogen bonds to form a three-dimensional (3-D) netlike supermolecule. Under excitation, Eu complex exhibited characteristic emissions. The lowest triplet state energy level of the ligand indicates that the triplet state energy level of the ligand matches better to the resonance level of Eu(III) than Tb(III) ion.
