Synthesis and evaluation of lanthanide ion DOTA–tetraamide complexes bearing peripheral hydroxyl groups


The use of lanthanide-based contrast agents for magnetic resonance imaging has become an integral component of this important diagnostic modality. These inert chelates typically possess high thermodynamic stability constants that serve as a predictor for in vivo stability and low toxicity. Recently, a new class of contrast agents was reported having a… (More)
