However, due to its instability in aqueous solution, there is still rare success to utilize amorphous calcium carbonate in biomedicine. Here, we report the mutual effect between paramagnetic gadolinium ions and amorphous calcium carbonate, resulting in ultrafine paramagnetic amorphous carbonate nanoclusters in the presence of both gadolinium occluded highly hydrated carbonate-like environment and poly(acrylic acid). Gadolinium is confirmed to enhance the water content in amorphous calcium carbonate, and the high water content of amorphous carbonate nanoclusters contributes to the much enhanced magnetic resonance imaging contrast efficiency compared with commercially available gadolinium-based contrast agents. Furthermore, the enhanced T1 weighted magnetic resonance imaging performance and biocompatibility of amorphous carbonate nanoclusters are further evaluated in various animals including rat, rabbit and beagle dog, in combination with promising safety in vivo. Overall, exceptionally facile mass-productive amorphous carbonate nanoclusters exhibit superb imaging performance and impressive stability, which provides a promising strategy to design magnetic resonance contrast agent.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/"/> <dc:contributor>Cölfen, Helmut</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Rosenberg, Rose</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2022-08-29</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Xu, Yun-Jun</dc:creator> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/29"/> <dc:creator>Zhao, Yang</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Avaro, Jonathan</dc:creator> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:rights>Attribution 4.0 International</dc:rights> <dc:creator>Rosenberg, Rose</dc:creator> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/58488/1/Dong_2-h5jdyfcvx80u5.pdf"/> <dc:creator>Dong, Liang</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Sui, Cong</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2022-09-05T08:31:50Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Xu, Yun-Jun</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Gebauer, Denis</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Avaro, Jonathan</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Lu, Yang</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Yu, Shu-Hong</dc:creator> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2022-09-05T08:31:50Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Cölfen, Helmut</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Sui, Cong</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Dong, Liang</dc:contributor> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/58488/1/Dong_2-h5jdyfcvx80u5.pdf"/> <dcterms:title>Highly hydrated paramagnetic amorphous calcium carbonate nanoclusters as an MRI contrast agent</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Zhao, Yang</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:contributor>Lu, Yang</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Yu, Shu-Hong</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/58488"/> <dc:contributor>Gebauer, Denis</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
