In the last years the development of new luminescent materials was grow highly in order to find efficient materials with low cost of processing. In this way the organic luminescent materials have special attention because its special characteristics, like antenna effect, low temperature processing, possibility to make translation to polymeric and flexible compounds. In this work luminescent powders of TTA:Eu3+ by sol-gel method were synthesized in order to define the synthesis parameters of the highest luminescence. The temperatures of heat treatment were 80°C, 100°C, 200°C and the concentration of Europium where 10%, 20%, 30% and 40% mol (TTA-10Eu, TTA-20Eu, TTA-30Eu, and TTA-40Eu). Fourier Transform Infrared Rays analysis (FTIR) and emission luminescence measures, the best conditions of synthesis were obtained at 40% mol of Europium and 80°C of heat treatment, at 272 nm of excitation. All the samples present the corresponded Eu3+ ion transitions the 5D07FJ (J = 0, 1, and 2). This confirms the great possibilities of these materials for optoelectronic applications.
