We considered the changes in the luminescent properties in the series of neodymium(III) complexes of various coordination types with different tetrapyrrole macrocycles (porphyrins, phthalocyanines and corroles): mononuclear complexes (metal-ligand ratio 1:1), sandwich type complexes (metal-ligand ratio 1:2 or 2:3), peripheral binding (on the basis of ditopic tetrapyrrole, metal-ligand ratio 1:1). 4f-Luminescence in the near infrared region is observed in all studied Nd-complexes as a result of intramolecular transfer of excitation energy. Each kind of complexes has its unique features, which are discussed. The peripheral complexes are dual-emissive: they display both neodymium(III) 4f-emission and molecular fluorescence. The values of quantum yield of molecular fluorescence as well as 4f-luminescence are estimated. It was found that binding type plays a key role in excited state relaxation pathways in the molecule. Corroles have unusual behaviour in terms of Nd sensitization.
