A Molecular Scaffold for Colonic Drug Delivery
A molecule which passes through the gastrointestinal tract was successfully synthesized and tested for GI MRI imaging in mice. A molecular scaffold bearing eight terminal alkyne groups was synthesized from sucrose, and copies of an azide-terminated Gd-DOTA complex were attached via copper(I)-catalyzed azide-alkyne cycloaddition. This contrast agent...
