Title: Preparation and luminescence properties of phosphors of rare earth complexes based on polyoxotungstates

Highlights: • Three new phosphors of rare earth complexes based on polyoxotungstates were synthesized. • [Eu(PW{sub 11}O{sub 39}){sub 2}]{sup 11−} (1) emits red light which used as potential red light materials. • [Sm(PW{sub 11}O{sub 39}){sub 2}] {sup 11−} (2) emits strong orange-red light at 598.7 nm. • [Dy(PW{sub 11}O{sub 39}){sub 2}] {sup 11−} (3) emits white light which used as potential white light materials. - Abstract: Three new phosphors of rare earth complexes based on polyoxotungstates, K{sub 3}Cs{sub 8}[Eu(PW{sub 11}O{sub 39}){sub 2}]·11H{sub 2}O (1), K{sub 3}Cs{sub 8}[Sm(PW{sub 11}O{sub 39}){sub 2}]·10H{sub 2}O (2), and K{sub 5}Cs{sub 6}[Dy(PW{sub 11}O{sub 39}){sub 2}]·15H{sub 2}O (3) have been prepared and characterized. The crystallographic analyses reveal that these compounds consist of two monovacant keggin anions [PW{sub 11}O{sub 39}]{sup 7−} connected by a rare earth ion in a sandwich structure. The investigations of photoluminescence properties show that phosphor 1 emits strong red light at 614 and 702 nm, 2 emits strong orange-red light at 598.7 nm, and 3 exists two strong emissions at 479 nm (blue) and 574 nm (orange). The luminescence properties suggest that the 1 can be applied as the potential red-emitting crystal phosphor, and the 3 may be regarded as a potential white lightmore » material for LEDs.« less
