A Family of Lanthanide-Based Coordination Polymers with Boronic Acid as Ligand

Abstract : Reactions in water between the sodium salt of 4-carboxyphenylboronic acid (Hcpb) and lanthanide ions (Pr-Nd, Sm-Lu, and Y) led to a family of lanthanide-based coordination polymers with general chemical formula \[Ln(cpbOH)(H2O)2](cpb)\∞. Structural characterizations were ensured by single-crystal X-ray diffraction and solid-state NMR spectroscopy ((11)B, (13)C, and (89)Y). This family of compounds constitutes the first example of lanthanide-based coordination polymers involving 4-carboxyphenylboronic acid as ligand. To evaluate their potential usefulness, luminescent and magnetic properties of some of the compounds that constitute this family were explored. From a magnetic point of view, the Yb(III) compound is the more promising. On the other hand, upon UV irradiation (λexc = 303 nm) ligand phosphorescence is quite intense and offers a sizable blue component to emission spectra. This is quite unusual and can constitute an asset as far as white emission is targeted. Moreover, luminescence properties of these compounds are highly temperature-dependent, and some of them seem promising as molecular thermometers.[on SciFinder (R)]
