Abstract

A new chiral complex {[EuL(tta)2(H2O)]CF3SO3; L = N, N'-bis(2-pyridylmethylidene)-1,2-( R, R + S, S)-cyclohexanediamine; tta = 2-thenoyltrifluoroacetyl-acetonate} has been synthesized and characterized from a structural and spectroscopic point of view. The molecular structure in the solid state shows the presence of one chiral L, two tta, and one water molecules bound to the metal center. L and tta molecules can efficiently harvest and transfer to Eu(III) the UV light absorbed in the 250-400 nm range. The forced electric-dipole 5D0 → 7F2 emission band dominates the Eu(III) emission spectra recorded in the solid state and in solution of acetonitrile or methanol and the calculated intrinsic quantum yield of the metal ion is around 40-50%. The light emitted by the enantiopure complex shows a sizable degree of polarization with a maximum value of the emission dissymmetry factor ( glum) equal to 0.2 in methanol solution. If compared with the complex in the solid state or in acetonitrile solution, then the first coordination sphere of Eu(III) when the complex is dissolved in methanol is characterized by the presence of one CH3OH molecule instead of water. This fact is related to different Eu(III) CPL signatures in the two solvents.
