Chelating DTPA amphiphiles: Ion-tunable self-assembly structures and gadolinium complexes

Moghaddam, Minoo; De Campo, Liliana; Kirby, N; Drummond, Calum


A series of chelating amphiphiles and their gadolinium (Gd(iii)) metal complexes have been synthesized and studied with respect to their neat and lyotropic liquid crystalline phase behavior. These amphiphiles have the ability to form ion-tunable self-assembly nanostructures and their associated Gd III complexes have potential as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast enhancement agents. The amphiphiles are composed of diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid (DTPA) chelates conjugated to one or...[Show more]
