Title: Polymorph (C{sub 2}N{sub 2}H{sub 10}){sub 0.5}RE{sub 3}F{sub 10}·xH{sub 2}O (RE = Ho-Lu, Y) and REF{sub 3} nanocrystals: Hydrothermal synthesis, characterization and luminescence

Abstract

Graphical abstract: A hydrothermal system is developed to prepare one new polymorph of (C{sub 2}N{sub 2}H{sub 10}){sub 0.5}RE{sub 3}F{sub 10}·xH{sub 2}O and known rare earth fluorides involving REF{sub 3} nanocrystals under mild condition. Highlights: ► A new polymorph of (C{sub 2}N{sub 2}H{sub 10}){sub 0.5}RE{sub 3}F{sub 10}·xH{sub 2}O has been synthesized. ► The RE{sup 3+} radius decides the shape evolution and phase control for REF{sub 3} NCs. ► The RE{sup 3+} radius has influence on the microstructure and morphology of REF{sub 3} NCs. -- Abstract: In this paper, a solvents-thermal system is developed to prepare one new polymorph of (C{sub 2}N{sub 2}H{sub 10}){sub 0.5}Ho{sub 3}F{sub 10}·xH{sub 2}O and rare earth fluorides REF{sub 3} nanocrystals under mild condition. It is found that the ionic radius of RE{sup 3+} is the key factor responsible for the shape evolution and phase control for rare earth fluorides nanocrystals at selected temperatures, which has an influence on the microstructure and morphology of the products to some extent. With the increase of the atomic number, the shape of fluoride changes from hexagonal REF{sub 3} phase (RE = La, Sm) to orthorhombic REF{sub 3} phase (RE = Eu-Dy), and finally to diamond structure (C{sub 2}N{sub 2}H{sub 10}){sub 0.5}Ho{submore » 3}F{sub 10}·xH{sub 2}O (RE = Ho, Er, Tm, Yb, Lu, Y). In addition, the characteristic energy level transition {sup 5}D{sub 0}–{sup 7}F{sub 1} of Eu{sup 3+} splits into 585 and 591 nm emission peaks, and the dominant peak is the orange emission at 591 nm.« less
