A new complex Eu(L)(MeOH)(NO3)3 was designed and synthesized under the hydrothermal reaction condition using Eu(NO3)3·6H2O as the metal source and 2,6-bis(5-phenyl-1H-pyrazol-3-yl) pyridine(L) as the ligand, and characterized by elemental analysis, infrared spectra, thermogravimetric analysis, X-ray powder diffraction and X-ray single crystal diffraction. The structural analysis shows that the central metal of complex is nine-coordinated and each of the central metal europium atoms is coordinated with three nitrogen atoms from L, six oxygen atoms from NO3- ions and MeOH to form a slightly distorted three-cap triangular prismatic spatial configuration. It is found that the complex has a strong fluorescence quenching effect on copper and nickel ions. The presence of other competing metal ions does not interfere with selective detection of Cu2+ by the complex, but has certain effect on the selective detection of Ni2+.
