Europium(III) and Terbium(III) complexes of type [Eu(L)Cl(H2O)2] and [Tb(L)OAc(H2O)2] (H2L = thiosemicarbazone ligands derived from substituted thiosemicarbazide and benzil/diacetyl) were synthesized. The ligands and synthesized complexes were characterized on the basis of elemental analysis, FT-IR and 1H NMR and X-ray diffraction studies. Photo-physical properties such as excitation spectra, emission spectra and luminescence curves of complexes were investigated. The most intense peak of Eu3+ ion found at 618 nm attributed to 5D0 → 7F2 transition and peak of Tb3+ ion at 549 nm attributed to 5D4 → 7F5 transition.
