Lanthanide complexes of DOTA monoamide derivatives bearing an isophthalate pendent arm.
- An isophthalate-bearing DOTA monoamide derivative has been synthesised and used to prepare a family of lanthanide complexes. Luminescence and NMR studies in solution show that the predominant form of the complexes in solution is a mono-capped square antiprism about the lanthanide centre, in which a solvent molecule occupies the ninth coordination site. The crystal structure of the terbium complex is presented and is in close agreement with the solution state data.
