Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Three new lanthanide heterocyclic β-diketonate complexes having the general formula Ln(PBI)3(DPEPO) [HPBI = 3-phenyl-4-benzoyl-5-isoxazolone, DPEPO = bis(2-(diphenylphosphino)phenyl) ether oxide and Ln3+ = Eu3+ (1), Tb3+ (2), and Gd3+ (3)] have been synthesized. Compounds 1 and 2 were characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The single-crystal X-ray diffraction analyses of 1 and 2 revealed that these complexes are mononuclear, and that the central Ln3+ ion is coordinated by six oxygen atoms furnished by three bidentate β-diketonate ligands and two oxygen atoms from the bidentate DPEPO ligand. The overall molecular geometry is distorted square prismatic. Examination of the packing diagrams for 1 and 2 revealed the presence of interesting molecular ladder structures held together by π···π and intermolecular hydrogen-bonding interactions. The effect of the chelating ancillary phosphine oxide ligand DPEPO on the sensitized luminescence of Eu3+ and Tb3+ luminescence in these heterocyclic β-diketonate complexes has been investigated. The ancillary ligand increases considerably the luminescence efficiency of [Eu(PBI)3(DPEPO)] (overall quantum yield 2−30%; 5D0 lifetime 250−1056 μs) compared to Eu(PBI)3(C2H5OH)(H2O), through the formation of intraligand states, while it is detrimental to Tb3+ luminescence in [Tb(PBI)3(DPEPO)] (overall quantum yield 11 to 0.5%; 5D4 lifetime 400 to 168 μs).
