pH-Responsive Magnetism of Homoleptic Iron(II) Complexes in Solution and Under Small Confinement

by René Nowak

This research investigates the possible application of iron(II) complexes as pH-responsive contrast agent. The model system [Fe(bipy)3]2+ is naturally diamagnetic but can become paramagnetic under formation of a protonated species which is introduced here. The underlying mechanism has been elucidated with various methods, demonstrating that [Fe(bipy)3]2+ can alter relaxivity values due to its pH-responsive magnetism. Furthermore it is shown that those properties can be preserved under small confinement in zeolites.
