Abstract

Scraps of waste PET bottle were successfully employed in two reactions as potent organic reagents to produce a lanthanide-free phosphor with intrinsic white and yellow photoluminescence property, providing a brand new perspective to chemical recovery of waste PET. Microwave synthesis was also explored to produce isotypic structures from which unforeseen variations in organic linker orientation were detected.
