Abstract

The luminescence properties of two compounds, [C(NH2)3][Eu(EDTA)(H2O)3] (I) and [C(NH2)3]2[Yb0.97Eu0.03(EDTA)(H2O)2]ClO4·6H2O (II), were determined. The weighted sum of luminescence spectra of I and II was used to reproduce the spectra of the Eu–EDTA system in aqueous solution in the temperature range 276–363 K. By implementing this method it was possible to determine the thermodynamic functions (ΔH = 18113 ± 506 J mole−1 and ΔS = 62.5 ± 4.9 J mole−1 K−1) of the reaction [Eu(EDTA)(H2O)3] ⇆ [Eu(EDTA)(H2O)2] + H2O, which is difficult using other methods.
