Amphiphilic perfluoroalkyl carbohydrates as new tools for liver imaging.


The synthesis of three molecules containing a fluorocarbon chain (either C(6)F(13), C(8)F(17) or C(10)F(21)), a sugar moiety (derived from lactobionic acid) and a chelate (derived from DTPA) is reported. These molecules (C(6)F(13)-Gal-DTPA, C(8)F(17)-Gal-DTPA or C(10)F(21)-Gal-DTPA) have been dispersed in water and their critical micellar concentration (CMC… (More)
