|Title:||Metal-isonitrile adducts for preparing radionuclide complexes|
|Abstract:||A method for preparing a coordination complex of an isonitrile ligand and a radioisotope of Tc, Ru, Co, Pt, Re, Os, Ir, W, Re, Cr, Mo, Mn, Ni, Rh, Nb and Ta from a non-radioactive metal adduct of the isonitrile.|

|Assignee:||E. I. Du Pont De Nemours and Company (Wilmington, DE)|
1. A method for preparing a coordination complex of an isonitrile ligand and a radioactive metal selected from the class consisting of radioactive isotopes of Tc, Ru, Co, Pt, Fe, Os,
Ir, W, Re, Cr, Mo, Mn, Ni, Rh, Pd, Nb and Ta, said method comprising admixing a lyophilized soluble copper adduct of said isonitrile ligand with a radioactive metal in a suitable solvent to replace said copper with the radioactive metal thereby forming
said coordination complex.
2. The method of claim 1 wherein said radioactive metal is Tc.
3. The method of claim 2 wherein said radioactive metal is Tc-99m.
4. The method of claim 3 wherein the isonitrile ligand has the formula CNR where R is butyl.
5. The method of claim 3 wherein the isonitrile ligand has the formula CNR where R is butyl having an alkyl ether or alkyl ester substitution.
6. The method of claim 1 wherein the copper adduct of said isonitrile ligand has the formula [Cu(CNR).sub.2 Y]X wherein R is a suitable organic radical, X is an appropriate counter ion and Y is a bidentate chelating ligand.
7. The method of claim 6 wherein Y is selected from the group consisting of phenanthroline, substituted phenanthroline, diimine, substituted diimine, bipyridine or substituted bipyridine.
