The normalised absorption and emission spectra of [[Ru[(phen).sub.2]L].sup.2+] in acetonitrile can be seen in Figures 2(a) and 2(b), respectively.
These results suggest that the molar ratio of [Dy.sup.3+] to SSA to Phen is 1: 3 : 1 in the prepared Dy[(SSA).sub.3]Phen complex.
Further thermal decomposition from 557 to 900 [degrees]C leads to loss of PHEN molecule and residual weight of 20%.

It indicates that the complex has been partially decomposed which may be from the decomposition of free ligand AA and part decomposition of phen. It arose an exothermic peak at 340[degrees]C accompanied by a slow weight loss process.
