Pick an anion: The anion-binding properties of functionalised Ln-DTPA-bis-amide complexes (Ln=Gd3+, Eu3+, DTPA=diethylene triamine pentaacetic acid) were investigated by using indicator displacement assays (IDAs) (see picture). A remarkable selectivity for polyphosphorylated species was observed. This has been successfully used to modulate the relaxivity of the Gd3+ complex with pyrophosphate.
