In order to synthesize the high efficiency luminescent material, A novel Cd (II) complex with 1-acetyl-2-naphthol-4, 4'-diaminodiphenyl ether was synthesized. The infrared spectrum and luminescent properties of Cd (II) complex material have also been studied. The infrared spectrum shows that the Cd (II) ion forms stable complex with 1-acetyl-2-naphthol-4, 4'-diaminodiphenyl ether. The results of fluorescence analysis indicate that the Cd (II) complex emit blue-green fluorescence in solid, however, the fluorescence is very weak in organic solvents. The results can guide the design and synthesis of new luminescent complex materials in the future.
