High relaxivity contrast agents for targeted MRI: Two biotinylated contrast agents (CAs), [Gd.L1–2], have been synthesized and characterized for magnetic resonance imaging (see figure). On binding to avidin, the transverse proton relaxivity (r2p) of [Gd.L1] undergoes a 906 % increase compared with 225 % for [Gd.L2]. The longitudinal proton relaxivity (r1p) shows strong field dependence. [Gd.L1]–avidin allows access of two H2O molecules to Gd whereas [Gd.L2]–avidin allows one.
