In this work, positron annihilation lifetime (PALS), Doppler broadening annihilation radiation lineshape (DBARL), Mössbauer and optical spectroscopies measurements were performed in Eu(III) dipivaloylmetanate complex, Eu(dpm)(3), at 295 and 80K. The Eu(dpm)(3) complex is not luminescent at 298K and does not form positronium. On the other hand, it is highly luminescent at 80K, but still does not form positronium. The absence of positronium formation at 80K cannot be explained by a ligand/metal charge transfer process. We found strong evidences that the electronic delocalization does not occur at both temperatures. Despite the Mössbauer results being inconclusive regarding the Eu(III)/Eu(II) reduction hypothesis, previous results showing positronium formation in other Eu(III) complexes suggest that this process is not occurring. Thus, more studies are needed to explain the absence of positronium in Eu(III) complexes.
