Abstract

Rhenium has been studied at length as a non-radioactive chemical analog to Technetium, a popular diagnostic imaging agent employed in nuclear medicine and biology. This study details a new synthetic method for preparing [Re(CO)3(H2O)3]Br as well as multiple derivatives of this complex using tridentate ligands. Full synthetic details and characterization will be pre
