  • Bifunctional Paramagnetic and Luminescent Clays Obtained by Incorporation of Gd³⁺ and Eu³⁺ Ions in the Saponite Framework 

    Marchesi, Stefano; Bisio, Chiara; Lalli, Daniela; Marchese, Leonardo; Platas-Iglesias, Carlos; Carniato, Fabio (American Chemical Society, 2021-07-08)
    [Abstract] A novel bifunctional saponite clay incorporating gadolinium (Gd³⁺) and europium (Eu³⁺) in the inorganic framework was prepared by one-pot hydrothermal synthesis. The material exhibited interesting luminescent ...
  • Defining the Conditions for the Development of the Emerging Class of Feᴵᴵᴵ-Based MRI Contrast Agents 

    Baranyai, Zsolt; Carniato, Fabio; Nucera, Alessandro; Horváth, Dávid; Tei, Lorenzo; Platas-Iglesias, Carlos; Botta, Mauro (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2021-07-26)
    [Abstract] Fe(III) complexes are attracting growing interest in chemists developing diagnostic probes for Magnetic Resonance Imaging because they leverage on an endogenous metal and show superior stability. However, in ...
  • Thiosemicarbazone Modified Zeolitic Imidazolate Framework (TSC-ZIF) for Mercury(II) Removal From Water 

    Jaafar, Amani; Platas-Iglesias, Carlos; Bilbeisi, Rana A. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2021-04-30)
    [Abstract] Zeolitic imidazolate frameworks (ZIF-8), and their derivatives, have been drawing increasing attention due to their thermal and chemical stability. The remarkable stability of ZIF-8 in aqueous and high pH ...
  • Expanding the Ligand Classes Used for Mn(II) Complexation: Oxa-aza Macrocycles Make the Difference 

    Kálmán, Ferenc Krisztián; Nagy, Viktória; Uzal-Varela, Rocío; Pérez-Lourido, Paulo; Esteban-Gómez, David; Garda, Zoltán; Pota, Kristof; Mezei, Roland; Pallier, Agnès; Tóth, Éva; Platas-Iglesias, Carlos; Tircsó, Gyula (MDPI, 2021-03-10)
    [Abstract] We report two macrocyclic ligands based on a 1,7-diaza-12-crown-4 platform functionalized with acetate (𝑡O2DO2A²⁻) or piperidineacetamide (𝑡O2DO2AMᴾⁱᵖ) pendant arms and a detailed characterization of the ...
  • Inert macrocyclic Eu3+ complex with affirmative paraCEST features 

    Gambino, Tanja; Valencia, Laura; Pérez-Lourido, Paulo; Esteban-Gómez, David; Zaiss, Moritz; Platas-Iglesias, Carlos; Angelovski, Goran (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2020-06-21)
    [Abstract]: We report on a macrocyclic platform based on an 18-membered macrocycle that forms kinetically highly inert paramagnetic complexes and possesses an excellent outlook for the development of bioresponsive paraCEST ...
