Abstract

Three europium complexes with the terdentate N-donor ligand 2,6-bis(1H-pyrazol-3-yl)pyridine (L) have been synthesized, and their crystal structures have been determined. The ligand/metal ratios in these complexes are 3, 2, and 1. The photophysical properties of the complexes indicate more efficient ligand sensitization of europium emission for the homoleptic complex.
