Two mono-substituted manganese polyoxometalates, K(6)MnSiW(11)O(39) (MnSiW(11)) and K(8)MnP(2)W(17)O(61) (MnP(2)W(17)), have been evaluated by in vivo and in vitro experiments as the candidates of potential tissue-specific contrast agents for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). T1-relaxivities of 12.1mM(-1)s(-1) for MnSiW(11) and 4.7 mM(-1)s(-1) for MnP(2)W… CONTINUE READING
