Recent advances in the formation of luminescent lanthanide architectures and self-assemblies from structurally defined ligands

Author affiliations

Abstract

This article gives some highlights of the recent advances in the development of novel lanthanide based complexes, conjugates and self-assembly structures formed from the use of organic ligands and organo-metallic (transition metal) complexes, that are designed with the aim of capitalising on the high coordination requirement of the lanthanide ions. The examples shown, demonstrate the versatility of the lanthanide ions as luminescent probes and sensors that emit at long wavelength either in the visible or the near infrared (NIR) part of the electromagnetic spectrum.
