Research Project Abstract

Lanthanide ions exhibit paramagnetic and optical properties that make them attractive for dual-modality imaging applications. In this project, we sought to obtain an understanding of how the position of the amide substituent on a quinoline side-chain influences the optical and magnetic properties of two europium complexes. To date, the luminescence properties of the europium complexes have been studied, and preliminary results indicate that the position of the amide substituent affects the electronic properties of the antenna; and this is reflected in the intensity of the emission spectra. Future work will include an investigation of the MRI properties of both complexes.
