Abstract: This article focuses on the synthesis of a new polymeric phosphors containing Tb+3 ions as a potential material for next generation optoelectronics devices. We are presented the results on the synthesis and luminescence properties of copolymers containing: 2-(9-carbazolyl)ethyl methacrylate (CEM) and p-methacryloyloxybenzoic acid (pMBA) complexed with Tb(III). All copolymers have been characterized by HNMR, GPC, FTIR and UV-Vis. Solutions of the copolymers in THF or CHCl3 have been examined for their photoluminescence properties. Finally, the possibility of using these materials in optoelectronics were compared to those already synthesized.
