Abstract

A novel ternary 2-(2-carboxylphenyl)imidazo[4,5-f]-1,10-phenanthroline- based europium(iii) 2-thenoyltrifluoroacetonate complex with red luminescence was designed and prepared for anion recognition. Spectroscopic studies, including UV-vis, fluorescence and NMR, showed that the sensor exhibited striking emission changes in response to fluoride (green), hydrogen sulfate (blue) and acetate anions (pale blue) due to hydrogen bonding and competitive coordination with the Eu(iii) ions. © 2010 The Royal Society of Chemistry and Owner Societies.
