pH driven self-assembly of a ternary lanthanide luminescence complex: the sensing of anions using a β-diketonate-Eu(III) displacement assay

Author affiliations

Abstract

The synthesis and the photophysical evaluation of a novel pH dependent lanthanide luminescent self-assembly in water between a cyclen based europium complex and a β-diketonate is described and its use as a luminescent sensor in displacement assays for anions such as acetate, bicarbonate and lactate, where the Eu(III) emission was quenched upon anion recognition.
