For many years the lanthanides have been considered as a series of complex, difficult to understand elements, however, research on them has not been adequate. In view of the many properties that have, in the last decade, there have been numerous studies and publications on this field of research, resulting in high demand with the aim of designing and creating materials that meet the requirements of various areas such as chemistry, biochemistry, medicine, industrial, technological and environmental, to solve various problems. One of the properties which the lanthanides have generated substantial interest, is photoluminescent characteristics they reveal. It is for this reason; it has also intensified development in the design of ligands capable of forming complexes with these metals, to increase its luminescent properties. This paper carried out the synthesis of the solid hybrid europium-1,4-benzenedicarboxylate different molar ratios, constructed from a metal ion and an organic ligand. Therein the luminescent properties of each of the powders (different molar ratios) the emission band of greater efficiency was determined studied, also characterizations as infrared spectrometry (IR), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and thermal analyzes were performed gravimetric (TGA).
