[AlCl3(BnMe2-tacn)] was radiolabelled by Cl/18F halide exchange reactions in the presence of 2.99 mol. equiv. of KF at pH 4 CH3CO2Na buffer solution with addition of 18F-target water, to give [Al18F19F2(BnMe2-tacn)] with RCY up to 24 %.

[GaF3(BnMe2-tacn)] can be successfully 18F-radiolabelled using a precursor concentration as low as 27 nM through 18F/19F isotopic exchange reactions, using 18F-target water in a 75 % MeCN/H2O solution, in good RCYs (37 ± 5 %) within 10 minutes. The RCY of the reaction starting with a precursor concentration of 268 nM and 2.68 μM were 66 ± 4 % and 73 ± 4 %, respectively.

Abstract

[AlCl3(BnMe2-tacn)] was radiolabelled by Cl/18F halide exchange reactions in the presence of 2.99 mol. equiv. of KF at pH 4 CH3CO2Na buffer solution with addition of 18F-target water, to give [Al18F19F2(BnMe2-tacn)] with RCY up to 24 %. The radio-product was purified through a simple SPE purification protocol in 99 % RCP and it shows excellent stability in 50 % EtOH/PBS solution for >3h.
[GaF3(BnMe2-tacn)] can be successfully 18F-radiolabelled using a precursor concentration as low as 27 nM through 18F/19F isotopic exchange reactions, using 18F-target water in a 75 % MeCN/H2O solution, in good RCYs (37 ± 5 %) within 10 minutes. The RCY of the reaction starting with a precursor concentration of 268 nM and 2.68 μM were 66 ± 4 % and 73 ± 4 %, respectively. [Ga18F19F2(BnMe2-tacn)] was purified through an SPE cartridge and formulated in 20 % EtOH/water solution showing a RCP of 99 % at t = 0 which decreases to 77-88 % after 2 h. The effect on the RCP of temperature, pH, addition of ascorbic acid, an excess of Cl− or OH− in solution were investigated.
The coordination chemistry of Group 13 metal fluorides towards O-donor ligands was developed.
