    ABSTRACT: Treatment of 1,3-diphenyl-1,3-propanedione 1a with europium (III) chloride in the presence of piperidine results in the halide ligands exchange giving newly piperidinium tetrakis (1,3-diphenyl-1,3-propanedionato)europate(III) complex 2a. The complex was characterized by 1H-NMR, positive FAB-mass, and Elemental Analysis. The exact molecular structure of 2a was determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction with the monoclinic space group Cc (centrosymmetric, No.13). The large cavity sizes of the complex 2a facilitated the inclusion of water and benzene solvate molecules. The other two different crystals 2b, 2c having two water molecules and one benzene moleculewere obtained by the crystallization in different solvents and the exact molecular structures were determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis with space groups P21/n (centrosymmetric, No.14), and P21/n (centrosymmetric, No.14), respectively. The eight coordinate structures of the complexes in the three crystals were slightly different due to the crystal packing and the existence of the solvent molecule(s). The photoluminescence studies indicated that four β-diketone ligands acted as strong antenna ligands and transferred the absorbed energy to europium (III) ion, consequently red luminescence was observed. These strong emissions wereattributed to the 5D0 → 7F2 transition of Europium (III) ions under UV excitation. The photoluminescence spectrum of the three crystals was almost same in solid as well as in solution.
