      Abstract: The 12-coordinated   hexakis(nitrato)europate(III) ion displays a luminescence   spectrum compatible with Th symmetry, with essentially a single   emission line at 16 873 cm(-1) arising from the   D-5(0)-->F-7(1) transition. At low temperature (4.2 - 170 K),   the lifetime of the D-5(0) level amounts to 10.9 ms and then   sharply decreases because of vibrational de-excitation processes   (E-a = 2 250 +/- 1 490 cm(-1)). The forbidden D-5(0)-->F-7(0)   transition displays an extensive pattern of Stokes and anti   Stokes vibrational components and its energy reflects a   nephelauxetic parameter for the nitrite ions delta(O(NO2)) equal   to -14.4, slightly larger than the one associated to the nitrate   ion in [Eu(NO3)(6)](3-). The ligand excitation spectrum contains   several bands displaying extensive vibrational structure mostly   due to the delta(NO2) vibrational mode
