Abstract

With the simple dinuclear Zn-Nd complex [ZnNdL(H2O)(NO 3)3] (1) (H2L = N,N′-bis(3- methoxysalicylidene)ethylene-1,2-diamine) as the precursor, tetranuclear [Zn2Nd2L2(4,4′-bpy)(NO3) 6]·Et2O (2) and [Zn2Nd2L 2(4,4′-bpe)]·2H2O (3) (4,4′-bpy = 4,4′-bipyridine, 4,4′-bpe = trans-bis(4-pyridyl)ethylene) complexes are formed: suitable choice of bidentate linkers could construct multinuclear heterometallic 3d-4f Schiff-base complexes with improved luminescent properties, and the controlling of linker character shows a potentially effective way to the fine-tuning properties of NIR luminescence from Nd ions.
