Self-assembly of lipid-based amphiphiles into various supramolecular nanostructured particles has been used in creating novel nanomaterials with diverse applications in drug delivery and diagnostic imaging. Here we report on Gd(iii) chelated DTPA amphiphiles with an oleyl chain (Gd-DTPA-MO) incorporated within the self-assembly matrix of glycerol monooleate (GMO), an inverse cubic phase forming system, at varying compositions. The dispersed colloidal nanoassemblies were explored for their...[Show more]
