Controlled synthesis of tetragonal terbium orthophosphate nanostructures through a solvothermal route

Yu, Ranbo and Bao, Jinrong and Yang, Xiaodan and Zhang, Jiayun and Deng, Jinxia and Chen, Jun and Xing, Xianran (2011) Controlled synthesis of tetragonal terbium orthophosphate nanostructures through a solvothermal route. Research on Chemical Intermediates, 37 (2-5). pp. 145-151. ISSN 0922-6168


The tetragonal TbPO4 was controlled synthesized via a simple solvothermal route by using glycol as solvent. The structures and micromorphologies of the as-synthesized TbPO4 have been investigated by means of X-ray powder diffraction (XRD) and field-emission scanning electronic microscopy (FE-SEM). The results showed that the tetragonal TbPO 4 are composed of square-like particles about 200 nm in diameter. The photoluminescence spectra exhibited that the emission spectra of the sample could be divided into two parts, representing the 5D4 → 7FJ (J = 6, 5, 4, 3) transitions and 5D3 → 7FJ (J = 6, 5, 4, 3) transitions of Tb3+.
