Investigation of new X-ray contrast media for radiography is an important field of science since discovering of X-rays in 1895. Despite the wide diversity of available X-ray contrast media the toxicity, especially nephrotoxicity, is still a big problem to be solved. The octahedral metal-cluster complexes of the general formula [{M6Q8}L6] can be considered(More)
The hexarhenium cluster complexes with benzotriazolate apical ligands [{Re6(μ3-Q)8}(BTA)6](4-) (Q = S, Se; BTA = benzotriazolate ion) were obtained by the reaction of [{Re6(μ3-Q)8}(OH)6](4-) with molten 1H-BTA (1H-benzotriazole). The clusters were crystallized as potassium salts and characterized by X-ray single-crystal diffraction, elemental analyses, and(More)
We studied the biodistribution of luminescent octahedral rhenium cluster complex K4[Re6S8(CN)6], a promising agent for photodynamic therapy. It was shown that rhenium complex [Re6S8(CN)6]4- is mainly accumulated in the liver, the central organ of metabolism, and can be excreted by the kidneys. The cluster complex was also accumulated in the spleen in(More)
The synthesis and characterisation of a new, highly luminescent inorganic cluster complex, (Bu4N)2[Mo6I8(NO3)6], are described. The complex possesses labile nitrato ligands and is therefore a useful precursor for the design of new luminescent materials. To exemplify this, functionalised polystyrene beads have been utilised as "polymeric ligands" to(More)
The octahedral cluster compound Na2 H8 [{Re6 Se8 }(P(C2 H4 CONH2 )(C2 H4 COO)2 )6 ] has been shown to be highly radio dense, thus becoming a promising X-ray contrast agent. It was also shown that this compound had low cytotoxic effect in vitro, low acute toxicity in vivo and was eliminated rapidly from the body through the urinary tract. The present(More)
The work introduces Tb(III)-centered luminescence of amino-modified silica nanoparticles doped with Tb(III) complexes for cellular imaging. For these purposes water-in-oil procedure was optimized for synthesis of 20 and 35nm luminescent nanoparticles with amino-groups embedded on the surface. The obtained results indicate an impact of the nanoparticle size(More)
Reactions in a sealed glass tube between melted pyrazine (pyz) and a Cs(3)Re(6)Q(i)(7)Br(i)Br(a)(6).H(2)O inorganic rhenium cluster compound (Q = S, Se; "i" for inner and "a" for apical positions) containing [Re(6)Q(i)(7)Br(i)Br(a)(6)](3-) units led to the substitution of three apical bromine ligands by three pyrazine groups with the formation of 3 CsBr as(More)
Reactions of rhenium chalcobromides Cs4[{Re6(mu3-S)8}Br6].2H2O, Cs3[{Re6(mu3-Se)8}Br6].2H2O, Cs3[{Re6(mu3-Q)7(mu3-Br)}Br6].H2O (Q = S, Se), and K2[{Re6(mu3-S)6(mu3-Br)2}Br6] with molten triphenylphosphine (PPh3) have resulted in a family of novel molecular hybrid inorganic-organic cluster compounds. Six octahedral rhenium cluster complexes containing PPh3(More)
Inclusion compounds of photoluminescent hexamolybdenum cluster complexes in the chromium terephthalate metal-organic framework, MIL-101 (MIL, Matérial Institut Lavoisier) were successfully synthesized in two different ways and characterized by means of powder X-Ray diffraction, chemical analysis and nitrogen sorption. Some important functional properties of(More)
An in vivo study was performed to evaluate the dependence of acute toxicity of high-radiopacity and luminescent octahedral cluster complexes of rhenium after intravenous injection on a composition of the cluster core. Changes in mouse body weight, water and food consumption, degree of intoxication, and morphological changes in the visceral organs were(More)
