Abstract  

Rare earth picrate complexes with L-leucine (Leu) were synthesized and characterized. Elemental analysis (CHN), EDTA titrations and thermogravimetric data suggest a general formula RE(pic)32Leu⋅5H2O (RE=La–Lu, Y and pic=picrate). IR spectra indicate the presence of water and suggest that L-leucine is coordinated to the central ion through the nitrogen of the aminogroup. The absorption spectrum of the solid Nd compound indicates that the metal-ligand bonds show a weak covalent character. Emission spectra and biexponential behavior of the luminescence decay of the Eu compound suggest the existence of polymeric species. Thermal analysis results indicate that all the compounds present a similar behavior, with five major thermal decomposition steps. The final products are rare earth oxides. A slow heating rate is necessary to observe all decomposition steps.

Summary  

Rare earth picrate (RE) complexes with L-lysine (Lys) were synthesized and characterized. Elemental analysis (CHN), EDTA titrations and thermogravimetry data suggest a general formula RE(pic)32Lys2H2O, where RE=La-Lu (without Pm) and Y, pic=picrate). IR spectra suggest that Lys is coordinated to the central ion through the nitrogen of the α-amino group. Parameters obtained from the absorption spectrum of the Nd compound indicated that the metal-ligand bonds are essentially electrostatic. Emission spectrum and biexponential behavior of the luminescence decay of the Eu compound suggest the existence of polymeric species. Thermogravimetric/derivative thermogravimetric (TG/DTG) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) curves of all complexes are very similar, with five events. The final products are the corresponding rare earth oxides and their X-ray diffraction patterns are identical to the calcinated oxides.</o:p>

Abstract  

Complexes of neodymium and europium with amides and aminoxides were synthesized and characterized by complexometric analyses with EDTA, CHN microanalytical procedures, IR absorption spectra, absorption spectra of neodymium complexes, emission spectrum of europium compounds at 77 K, thermogravimetric analyses in N2 and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) in N2. Infrared spectroscopy results revealed that the nitrate molecules are bound to the central ions as bidentate. Thermogravimetric plots indicated that the decomposition of the complexes occurs in the range 363-1163 K and resulted in the formation of Ln2O3 residues.
