We report the nanoscale loading and confinement of aquated Gd3+n-ion clusters within ultra-short single-walled carbon nanotubes (US-tubes); these Gd3+n@US-tube species are linear superparamagnetic molecular magnets with Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) efficacies 40 to 90 times larger than any Gd3+-based contrast agent (CA) in current clinical use.
X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) along with inductively coupled plasma analysis (ICP-AE) and Raman spectroscopy have been used to define the location and to quantify the amount of iodine in HiPco SWNT samples loaded with molecular I(2) via sublimation (I(2)-SWNTs). The exterior-adsorbed I(2) can be removed (as I(-)) by reducing the sample of filled(More)
