NEAR INFRARED HIGH EMISSION RARE-EARTH COMPLEX
The present invention has been created to provide a near infrared high emission rare-earth complex having an excellent light-emitting property in the near infrared region. The near infrared high emission rare-earth complex of the present invention is characterized in that its structure is expressed by the following general formula (1): where Ln(III) represents a trivalent rare-earth ion
n is an integer equal to or greater than three
Xs represent either the same member or different members selected from a hydrogen atom, a deuterium atom, halogen atoms, C1-C20 groups, hydroxyl groups, nitro groups, amino groups, sulfonyl groups, cyano groups, silyl groups, phosphonic groups, diazo groups and mercapto groups
and Z represents a bidentate ligand.
