For a series of 4,4′-bpe-linked Zn2Ln2-arrayed Schiff-base complexes [Zn2(L)2Ln2(4,4′-bpe)(NO3)6] (Ln = La, 1; Ln = Nd, 2; Ln = Yb, 3; Ln = Er, 4 or Ln = Gd, 5), degradative chain transfer of the central CC double bond from 4,4′-bpe within restrains their effective copolymerization with MMA, while PMMA-supported doped hybrid materials PMMA@[Zn2(L)2Ln2(4,4′-bpe)(NO3)6] are obtained, respectively. Their physical properties show that thermal-stability and film-forming properties are distinctively improved while NIR luminescent properties can be retained.
