Luminescent Lanthanide Complexes, Clusters, Coordination Polymers and Metal-organic Frameworks with Temperature-sensing properties
Luminescent lanthanide(III) complex shows narow emission bands (full width at half maxim < 10 nm in visible reagion) based of the 4f-4f transitions, which are suitable for application in display and sensing devices. Temperature-depended luminescence of lanthanide complex are expected to be applied in effective temperaure-sensitive paints with higher sensitivity in wide-range for measurements of physical parameters of a material surface in the fields of fluid dynamics, aeronautical engineering, environment engineering, and energy technology. In this review , the characteristics of lanthanide ion emissions, suitable detection systems for thermo-sensing properties, temperature depended luminescence of lanthanide mono-nuclear complex, poly-nuclear clusters, coordination polymers (CPs) and metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are introduced. Theoretical considerations of their temperature-depended photiophysical processes and advanced retiometric sensing system for precise temperature detection are also described. Study on the luminescent lanthanide complex with thermo-sensing properties opens-up the frontier field of research in advanced material chemistry.
