Chelating amphiphiles with N, N'-ethylene diamine tetraacetic acid (EDTA) conjugated via an ester bond to one or two oleyl chain/s (EDTA-MO and EDTA-BO) have been found to be capable of chelating a variety of metal ions including paramagnetic metal ions such as Manganese (Mn) and Gadolinium (Gd). Thermal behavior and stability were investigated by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). X-ray diffraction (XRD), polarizing optical microscopy (POM) and...[Show more]
