Hydroxamamide as a chelating moiety for the preparation of 99Tcm radiopharmaceuticals (I).


Hydroxamamides contain a nitrogen and an oxygen as donor atoms, and can be synthesized by the simple reaction of nitriles with hydroxylamine. Benzohydroxamamide (BHam) was investigated as a new ligand for 99Tcm. The yield of the 99Tcm-BHam complex was determined by thin-layer chromatography using cellulose strips. A high yield of the complex was obtained at… (More)
