Publication details for Prof. David Parker

Fulton, D.A., Elemento, E.M., Aime, S., Chaabane, L., Botta, M. & Parker, D. (2006). Glycoconjugates of gadolinium complexes for MRI applications. Chemical Communications 2006(10): 1064-1066.

Author(s) from Durham


Examples of C-4 symmetric, medium MW conjugates incorporating 12 glucose or galactose groups linked via four dendritic wedges to a central Gd complex have been characterised; their enhanced relaxivity is interpreted in terms of effective motional coupling and large contributions from second sphere water molecules.
