Europium(III) Complexes/Silica Hybrid Nanospheres Synthesized in Microemulsion
Abstract:Eu(DBM)3 Phen/silica nanospheres with a uniform diameter of ∼40 nm and the characteristic fluorescence of Eu3+ ions have been synthesized by a microemulsion method. SEM and TEM analysis indicate that the hybrid nanospheres are core/shell structures with fine spherical surfaces and that Eu(DBM)3 Phen has been successfully enveloped in the SiO2 spheres as chromophore cores. IR absorption spectra and photoluminescence spectra suggest that the hybrid nanoparticles are promising materials for bioassay.
