Abstract

This work presents basic research in the area of lanthanide spectroscopy that could have the potential in chemical sensor technology. As part of the overall theme of developing synthetic scheme that may remove water from lanthanide inner sphere coordination we have targeted phosphines oxides. The synthesis of lanthanide TPAO compounds have been carried out by a reaction of Ln3+ trichloride hexahydrate and TPAO in solvent system containing water.
