Abstract

Within series of Ln3-grafted polymers Poly({[Ln3(L)4(NO3)6]·(NO3)·(H3O)2}-co-NBE) (Ln = La, 1; Ln = Eu, 2; Ln = Tb, 3; Ln = Nd, 4; Ln = Yb, 5; Ln = Er, 6 or Ln = Gd, 7) obtained from ring-opening metathesis polymerization (ROMP) of norbornene (NBE) with each of allyl-functionalized complex monomers {[Ln3(L)4(NO3)6]·(NO3)·(H3O)2} (HL = 4-allyl-2-(1H-benzo[d]imidazol-2-yl)-6-methoxyphenol), PNBE-assisted effective energy transfer renders Poly(3-co-NBE) Tb3+-centered highly luminous color-purity green-light with an attractive quantum yield of 87% and efficient near-infrared (NIR) luminescence (ΦNdL = 0.61%; ΦYbL = 1.47% and ΦErL = 0.03%) for Nd3+-, Yb3+- or Er3+-grafted polymers.
