The coordination network consisting of trivalent bismuth ions and pyromellitic acid (H4Pyr), [Bi(HPyr)], was successfully applied as host matrix for in situ incorporation of the trivalent rare earth ions RE3+: Sm3+, Eu3+, Tb3+ and Dy3+. The high-throughput methods for hydrothermal synthesis allowed to prepare and study phase purity and crystallinity of sample series, accelerating and facilitating the comparison between the synthesis parameters. Infrared absorption spectroscopy, elemental and thermogravimetric analysis, scanning electron microscopy and energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, as well as powder X-ray diffraction and the Le Bail refinement of the compounds indicated that doping did not affect the structure, crystallinity, morphology and thermal stability of the matrix. The study of the spectroscopic luminescence properties of the nondoped and doped [Bi(HPyr)] allowed the investigation of the sensitization processes of dopant RE3+ ions. The characteristic spectroscopic properties of the Eu3+ ion were used to study the incorporation site and coordination environment of the dopant by the calculation of the experimental intensity parameters Ωλ (λ: 2 and 4), besides the intrinsic quantum yield (QEUEU) of the Eu3+ single-doped [Bi(HPyr)]. Straightforward emission color tuning by changing the relative concentrations of the dopant ions is possible and has been studied for the systems double-doped with Tb3+:Eu3+, Tb3+:Sm3+, Dy3+:Eu3+ and Dy3+:Sm3+ ions. The Dy-containing systems show different shades of white emission and a wide range of correlated color temperatures (CCT - 2500 to 7500 K), hence being a promising candidate for the development of single-phase white light emitting devices.
