Abstract

Here, the excellent thermal sensing capability of a multinuclear lanthanide polyoxometalate in the cryogenic region (<100 K) is presented for the first time. Up till now, no lanthanide polyoxometalates have been studied for their use as ratiometric luminescent thermometers. The investigated Tb3+ polyoxometalate cluster is doped with 1.6% (P1) and 8.4% (P2) of Eu3+ ions. When excited into the Mo–O charge transfer bands, at room temperature only the emission of the Eu3+ ions is observed suggesting a very efficient energy transfer between Mo–O→Tb3+→Eu3+. Only in the cryogenic region the emission of Tb3+ is also witnessed.
