The ligands 4-fluorobenzoate (4-fba), 4-chlorobenzoate (4-cba), 4-bromobenzoate (4-bba) and 4-iodobenzoate (4-iba) were chosen in order to synthesize europium(III), gadolinium(III) and terbium(III) complexes and compare the effect of halogens on their physical chemistry and luminescent properties. The homobimetallic complex {[}Eu(4-iba)(3)(H2O)(dmf)](2) crystallizes in the monoclinic P2(1)/c space group with unit cell parameters a = 8.3987(9) angstrom, b = 25.314(3) angstrom, c = 14.1255(17) angstrom, and beta = 105.347(2)degrees 1. FTIR spectroscopy indicates that the bidentate bridging mode of the carboxylato ligand was present in all complexes while bidentate chelate and a mixture of bidentate bridging and chelate modes were also found. According to emission spectra profiles and the Judd-Ofelt parameters the halogen of ligand molecules modifies the chemical environment symmetry around the europium(III) ion in their respective complexes. The complexes {[}Eu(4-fba)(3)(H2O)(2)] and {[}Eu(4-iba)(3)(H2O)(2)] have the highest symmetry around the europium(III) while the complexes {[}Eu(4-cba)(3)]center dot 2H(2)O, {[}Eu(4-bba)(3)]center dot 5/2H(2)O and {[}Eu(4-iba)(3)(H2O)(dmf)](2) have the lowest. The different halogens at the para position do not change the covalence degree of Eu-O bonds significantly, however they play a role in the ligand to metal charge transfer energies. The highest non-radiative energy transfer rates from ligand to europium(III) were found for the complexes {[}Eu(4-cba)(3)]center dot 2H(2)O and {[}Eu(4-bba)(3)]center dot 5/2H(2)O. (AU)
