Effects of Macrocyclic and Cryptand Ligands on Photophysics of Eu3+ Ions
The effects of second-sphere perturbations on the photochemical and photophysical properties of transition metal complexes have been discussed in a recent review paper (Balzani 1986). In the frame of that study lanthanide complexes were also considered, assuming that an analogy could be seen between the effects produced by the second coordination sphere on the d-block metal complexes and the first coordination sphere on the f-block metal ions.
