Abstract:
The employment of an ancillary amine-substituted bisphosphonate ligand affords a dicobalt complex able to quantitate pH with a remarkably high sensitivity of 8.8(5) pH unit⁻¹ at 37 °C through a ratiometric paramagnetic chemical exchange saturation transfer (PARACEST) approach, where the different pH dependences of amine and amide CEST peak intensities are utilized.
