Organic-Inorganic Hybrids Assembled from Lanthanide and 1,4-Phenylenebis(phosphonate) Academic Article uri icon


  • A series of novel organic-inorganic hybrids based on trivalent lanthanide (Ln = La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Sm, Eu, Gd, Tb, Dy, Ho) and 1,4-phenylbis(phosphonate) formulated as Ln[O3P(C6H4)PO3H] has been obtained as single phases under hydrothermal conditions. In the praseodymium compound (Za1), single crystals have been obtained and the crystal structure has been determined. Za1 crystallizes in the monoclinic space group, C2/c, with a = 5.6060(4) , b = 20.251(7) , c = 8.2740(6) , = 108.52(1). All other compounds are isostructural to Za1 as confirmed by Rietveld refinement using X-ray powder diffraction data. Compounds are characterized by thermal analyses (TG-MS and SDTA), elemental analysis, IR spectra, and X-ray thermodiffraction analysis. Their visible photoluminescence properties are also discussed. 2011 American Chemical Society.
