In this article, Sm(Sal)xPhen, SmyY1-y(Sal)3Phen were synthesized and its films were prepared. They were characterized by infrared spectra (IR), ultra-violet visible spectrometer (UV), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and fluorescence spectroscopy. Sm/Y complexes and its mixture doped with the polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) showed photoluminescence at the wavelength of 646 nm. There was an excellent compatibility among Sm/Y complexes, the polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) and dimethyl sulphoxide (DMSO), which were used to prepare the resin film. The results indicated that Sm/Y rare earth light conversion films were better light conversion films with good compatibility in resins, and with emission wavelength suitable for plants’ photosynthesis.
