Effects of support and ligand on the photoluminescence properties of siliceous grafted europium complexes

  • Europium ions were introduced in SiO2 and MCM-41 via two different pathways: (1) grafting the europium complexes with two alkoxide structures, 3-(2-imidazolin-1-yl)-propyl-triethoxysilane (IPTES) and aminopropyltrimethoxysilane (APTMS), and (2) functionalization of the SiO2 support with silicon 4- carboxylbutyltriethoxide followed by subsequent addition of the europium ions. The new materials were characterized using nitrogen adsorption isotherms at -196 degrees C, thermogravimetric analysis, scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, powder X-ray diffraction, Fourier transform infrared, NMR, DR-UV-vis, steady-state emission and excitation, and time-resolved photoluminescence spectroscopy. Spectral changes found in the time-resolved photoluminscence spectra strongly point to the distribution of europium ions on a range of environments in both SiO2 and MCM-41 supports. The average europium photoluminescence lifetimes decrease within the order: Eu3+-IPTES/SiO2 (550 mu s) > Eu3+-APTMS/SiO2 (425 mu s) >Europium ions were introduced in SiO2 and MCM-41 via two different pathways: (1) grafting the europium complexes with two alkoxide structures, 3-(2-imidazolin-1-yl)-propyl-triethoxysilane (IPTES) and aminopropyltrimethoxysilane (APTMS), and (2) functionalization of the SiO2 support with silicon 4- carboxylbutyltriethoxide followed by subsequent addition of the europium ions.

The photoluminescence quantum efficiency has the largest value, of 22%, for Eu3+-IPTES/SiO2, while the most reduced value, of 9%, was measured for Eu3+-CABES/SiO2.show moreshow less
