Abstract

Luminescent lanthanide complexes have been prepared by exploiting the interaction between lanthanide DO3A complexes and chromophore bearing carboxylates or phosphonates. This interaction can be utilised to probe the choice of sensitising chromophore suited to a given lanthanide. Furthermore, ternary complexes obtained from chromophore appended carboxylates dissociate in the presence of phosphate, while those obtained from phosphonates do not.
