Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Examples of C-4 symmetric, medium MW conjugates incorporating 12 glucose or galactose groups linked via four dendritic wedges to a central Gd complex have been characterised; their enhanced relaxivity is interpreted in terms of effective motional coupling and large contributions from second sphere water molecules.
