In this contribution, we present the synthesis, characterization and spectroscopic investigation of the heteroleptic (R,R)-YbL1(tta) and (R,R)-NdL1(tta) complexes (with tta = 2-thenoyltrifluoroacetonate and L1 = N,N'-bis(2-(8-hydroxyquinolinate)methylidene)-1,2-(R,R or S,S)-cyclohexanediamine) in the solid state. The f-f metal-centered NIR luminescence emission of Nd(III) and Yb(III) is efficiently sensitized by both chromophoric ligands in a very broad range of wavelengths [from 250 to 600 nm, in the case of Nd(III) and from 250 to 650 nm, for Yb(III)]. A possible energy transfer mechanism is proposed: for (R,R)-NdL1(tta) complex a classical Ligand-to-Metal Energy Transfer (LMET) mechanism (antenna effect) is suggested, whilst in the case of the (R,R)-YbL1(tta) complex, the presence of a ligand-to-metal charge transfer (LMCT) state determines the sensitization of Yb(III) luminescence. We propose that this level is populated by the singlet and triplet excited states belonging to pi -> pi* and n -> pi* transitions of both ligands and it can transfer the excitation energy to F-2(5/2).

Abstract

In this contribution, we present the synthesis, characterization and spectroscopic investigation of the heteroleptic (R,R)-YbL1(tta) and (R,R)-NdL1(tta) complexes (with tta = 2-thenoyltrifluoroacetonate and L1 = N,N'-bis(2-(8-hydroxyquinolinate)methylidene)-1,2-(R,R or S,S)-cyclohexanediamine) in the solid state. The f-f metal-centered NIR luminescence emission of Nd(III) and Yb(III) is efficiently sensitized by both chromophoric ligands in a very broad range of wavelengths [from 250 to 600 nm, in the case of Nd(III) and from 250 to 650 nm, for Yb(III)]. A possible energy transfer mechanism is proposed: for (R,R)-NdL1(tta) complex a classical Ligand-to-Metal Energy Transfer (LMET) mechanism (antenna effect) is suggested, whilst in the case of the (R,R)-YbL1(tta) complex, the presence of a ligand-to-metal charge transfer (LMCT) state determines the sensitization of Yb(III) luminescence. We propose that this level is populated by the singlet and triplet excited states belonging to pi -> pi* and n -> pi* transitions of both ligands and it can transfer the excitation energy to F-2(5/2).
