A new tripodal ligand has been designed by coupling pyridyldicarbonyl binding strands with a triazatriangulenium platform (TATA). The complexation reaction with europium provides a C3-symmetrical mononuclear compound that is characterized with NMR, ESMS and qualitatively with single-crystal X-ray crystallography. In addition, photophysical studies of this dual emissive system have been performed, since the combination of the TATA fluorophore with trivalent lanthanides is of potential interest for the further development of imaging applications.
