Synthesis of gels with basis of titanium tungstates as matrixes of radioactive generators; Sintesis de geles a base de titanio tungstenatos como matrices de generadores radiactivos

Abstract

The heteropolyanions, compounds formed by the union of molybdates or tungstates polyanions with atoms of metals like zirconium, titanium, cerium, thorium, tin, etc., have been used as generator matrixes of {sup 99m} Tc or {sup 188} Re. Particularly they have been studied and produced successfully in our laboratory, generators of {sup 99} Mo/ {sup 99}m Tc at basis of gels zirconium molybdates and titanium molybdates. Considering that the molybdenum and tungsten, as well as the technetium and the rhenium, its belong to the same groups of transition metals, it is feasible that gels can be synthesized at basis of titanium tungstates, continuing a methodology similar to that of the gels titanium molybdates or zirconium molybdates, to produce generators {sup 188} W/ {sup 188} Re. The {sup 188} Re possess nuclear characteristics that make it attractive for therapeutic applications, since, it emits {beta}{sup -} particles of a great energy (2.12 MeV); joined to the possibility of being able to unite to different ligands (bifunctional agents) and biomolecules (antibodies or fragments of proteins), as it makes the {sup 99m} Tc, useful in radioimmunotherapy.

The {sup 188} Re possess nuclear characteristics that make it attractive for therapeutic applications, since, it emits {beta}{sup -} particles of a great energy (2.12 MeV); joined to the possibility of being able to unite to different ligands (bifunctional agents) and biomolecules (antibodies or fragments of proteins), as it makes the {sup 99m} Tc, useful in radioimmunotherapy. Commercially the {sup 188} Re generators use a chromatographic column loaded with alumina where the {sup 188} Re, it is adsorbed and eluted the {sup 188} ReO{sub 4}{sup -} by means of a saline solution The alumina adsorbs around 0.2% of the {sup 188} Re, situation that forces to use {sup 188} Re of a high specific activity. The use of the gels technology, allows to work with medium or low specific activities of {sup 188} Re, opening the possibility of their production in countries whose nuclear capacity is medium or low. In particular, the synthesized gels with basis of titanium offer the possibility of being synthesized with non active material, for later on to be irradiated and directly produce the generator, since, the titanium {sup 51} Ti, unique radioisotope produced by the titanium, has a half life of 5.79 min. This synthesis method avoids the manipulation of radioactive material during the synthesis of the gels, process that consumes around 7 hours. Therefore, in base to the studies carried out with titanium molybdates, it is intends in this work, the synthesis of titanium tungstates gels, to be used as matrixes of the generators {sup 188} W / {sup 188} Re. This type of studies has not been reported in the literature, for what is necessary to undertake basic studies on those preparation conditions and the effect of the characteristics of the titanium tungstates gels in the efficiency of the generators. Parameters like the pH of those initial solutions of tungsten and titanium, the molar relation W:Ti and very particularly the drying of the final product are fundamental to determine the preparation conditions of these gels. Therefore, in order to finding new alternatives of production of {sup 188} W {yields} {sup 188} Re, easy to produce and with high titration efficiencies, it is intends in this work, to develop a generator with basis of titanium and tungsten compounds that could be irradiated after their synthesis.
