Copper-64 (T1/2 =12.7 h; b+
: 0.653 MeV, 17.4%; bĄ
: 0.578 MeV, 39%) has applications in positron emission tomography (PET) imaging
and radiotherapy, and is conveniently produced on a biomedical cyclotron. Tetraazamacrocyclic ligands are the most widely used bifunctional
chelators (BFCs) for attaching copper radionuclides to antibodies and peptides due to their relatively high kinetic stability. In this paper, we
evaluated three monooxo-tetraazamacrocyclic ligands with different ring sizes and oxo group positions. H1 [1,4,7,10-tetraazacyclotridecan­
11-one], H2 [1,4,8,11-tetraazacyclotetradecan-5-one] and H3 [1,4,7,10-tetraazacyclotridecan-2-one] were radiolabeled with 64
