Abstract: A molecule bearing a macrocyclic DOTA-type chelator and an acyclic chelator based on the 5-aminoisophthalamide diethylenediaminetetraacid (5A-PADDTA) was synthesized by linking these two moieties via an amide bond. The ligand has the possibility to complex two identical or different lanthanide ions, depending on the desire for its potential application. Luminescence studies involving titrations of the Eu3+ or Gd3+ complex with Tb3+ confirm the formation of heterometallic complexes, as well as the presence of different species in the solution. Comparative H-1 NMR spectra of the ligand, its Eu3+ complex, and that containing both Eu3+ and Tb3+ proves the existence of respective monometallic or bimetallic species. NMR diffusion measurements on 5A-PADDTA as a model compound indicate the formation of aggregates upon the addition of Y3+ (chosen as a diamagnetic analogue of lanthanide ions). Hydration values were calculated from the respective luminescence lifetime values. They show the dominance of a q = 1 species for both ions in monometallic complexes, or q = 1 and q = 2 species of ions in aggregated complexes, for DOTA and 5A-PADDTA chelators, respectively.
