The increasing demand of optoelectronic devices requires the development of luminescent materials with high luminescence quantum efficiency and reduced energy consumption, to this organic matrix materials doped with rare earths offer an great alternative. The organic matrix materials also provide flexibility properties, low density, low economical methods of synthesis that increase the advantage from these materials to the traditional synthesis with phosphors. In this paper benzenetricarboxylate ligand doping with europium ion was synthesized and this structural and luminescent properties were measured, the formation of this metalorganic compound was generated through chemical synthesis from europium nitrate and benzene 1,3,5 –tricarboxylate acid precursors. Through the characterization by X-ray diffraction powder (XRD), infrared spectroscopy, SEM structural characterization, and luminescent spectroscopy the good incorporation of Europium was tested and a red luminescent emission with a high quantum efficiency was observed.
