Abstract

The structure of the [Eu(CyMe4-BTBP)2(NO3)n](3−n)+ complex in 1-octanol solution and solid state has been determined by EXAFS and X-ray crystallography. The crystal structure shows that 1-octanol binds only to the europium(III)-coordinated BTBP molecules through weak van der Waals forces, making it the first indication of the role of the extraction solvent.
