Salicylic acid and analogues as diaCEST MRI contrast agents with highly shifted exchangeable proton frequencies

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


More than water: Chemical exchange saturation transfer (CEST) contrast agents have used water bound to lanthanides as a source of highly shifted exchangeable proton frequencies. Compounds with the 2-hydroxybenzoic acid scaffold were investigated as a source of highly shifted protons for CEST MRI contrasting.
