Abstract: N-(2-[F-18]fluoroethyl)-N'-methylthiourea ([F-18]FEMTU), a fluorine-18 labelled derivative of the hydrogen peroxide scavenger dimethylthiourea (DMTU), has been synthesized by reaction of 2-[F-18]fluoroethylamine with methylisothiocyanate. 2-[F-18]Fluoroethylamine was obtained in modest radiochemical yields (39+/-6%, mean+/-sd, n=5, decay corrected) by nucleophilic substitution with [F-18]fluoride on N-[2(p-toluenesulfonyloxy)ethyl] phthalimide followed by deprotection with hydrazine and distillation.
