Great efforts have been put in search of phosphors to fulfill the requirements for phosphor-converted white light-emitting diodes (pc-WLEDs). Herein, a general organic–inorganic hybridization strategy was demonstrated in Mn4+-, Cr3+-, or Eu3+-doped guanidinium-based zero-dimensional hybrid fluorides to find phosphors for pc-WLEDs. Among which, GA3AlF6:Mn4+ (where GA represents the guanidinium cation [C(NH2)3]+) was selected to reveal their crystal structure, local symmetry, and luminescence properties. Density functional theory calculations suggested that GA3AlF6 with a wide band gap (∼5.24 eV) and the Fi′ interstitials are generated to balance the charge differences caused by non-equivalent doping. The GA3AlF6:Mn4+ hybrid could sustain ∼573 K high temperature without degradation and keep 90.1% of the original luminescence intensity at ∼373 K. A pc-WLED with wide color gamut (108.3%) of National Television System Committee standard was fabricated with GA3AlF6:Mn4+, suggesting its potential in high-quality backlight displays. This work not only brings a brand-new kind of organic–inorganic fluoride phosphor family but also provides great guiding significance for future exploration of fluoride-based functional materials containing a hybrid structure.
