Abstract : This work represents a major contribution to the understanding of ionic liquid-based acidic aqueous biphasic system formation and application. Abstract : Ionic-liquid-based acidic aqueous biphasic systems (IL-based AcABS) represent a promising alternative to the solvent extraction process for the recovery of critical metals, in which the substitution of the inorganic salt by an acid allows for a 'one-pot' approach to the leaching and separation of metals. However, a more fundamental understanding of AcABS formation remains wanting. In this work, the formation mechanisms of AcABS are elucidated through a comparison with traditional aqueous biphasic systems (ABS). A large screening of AcABS formation with a wide range of IL identifies the charge shielding of the cation as the primary structural driver for the applicability of an IL in AcABS. Through a systematic study of tributyltetradecylphosphonium chloride ([P44414]Cl) with various chloride salts and acids, we observed the first significant deviation to the cationic Hofmeister series reported for IL-based ABS. Furthermore, the weaker than expected salting-out ability of H3 O + compared to Na + is attributed to the greater interaction of H3 O + with the [P44414] + micelle surface. Finally, the remarkable thermomorphic properties of [P44414]Cl based systems are investigated with a significant increase in the biphasic region induced by the increase in the temperature from 298 K to 323 K. These finding allows for the extension of ABS to new acidic systems and highlights their versatility and tunability
Etude à pH physiologique, des mécanismes de transmétallation de complexes linéaires et macrocycliques de gadolinium utilisés en IRM. by Vijetha Mogilireddy( )

The aim of this work is to analyse the stability of metal complexes with ligands or nanoparticles of interest in MRI and to study their transmetallation mechanisms in the presence of endogenous cations near physiological pH. Two types of polyaminocarboxylate ligands were studied for which the binding unit was either linear or macrocyclic.Macrocyclic ligands are constituted of a DO3A backbone functionalized with a benzimidazole (L1H4) or a p-nitrophenylbenzimidazole unit (L2H3). Thermodynamic data indicated that the affinities of these ligands towards first row transition metal ions (Cu(II) and Zn(II) or lanthanide ions (Gd(III) and Eu(III)) are increased compared to the corresponding ones with DO3A. This enhancement is correlated to the involvement of the benzimidazole moiety to each metal coordination sphere. For gadolinium complex Gd(III)- L1H4, its kinetic inertness was evaluated in phosphate buffer by relaxometry, in the presence of equimolar quantities of Zn(II) as a competitor. In these conditions, if the complex is not chemically inert, it would be subjected to a transmetallation reaction, that is to say that at least, gadolinium would be released. For Gd(III)-L1H4, no such reaction was detected which is in favour of kinetic inertness of Gd(III)- L1H4.Linear ligand, dithiolated DTPA bisamide L@1H5 was designed with an aim of grafting it onto gold nanoparticles. L@1H5 and the ligand grafted into gold nanoparticle,namely L@2H3, were analysed for their thermodynamic stability towards mainly Cu(II), Zn(II) and Gd(III). Whatever the system, L@1H5 or L@2H3, the general trend of increasing complex stability was Zn(II) < Cu(II) < Gd(III). Furthermore, Gd(III)-L@1H5 complex was less stable than Gd(III)-L@2H3, this latter being 2 orders of magnitude more stable at physiological pH. This suggested that the gadolinium complex stability is enhanced when the ligand is grafted onto the nanoparticle. Moreover, comparative kinetic inertness studies showed that the gadolinium complex Gd(III)-L@1H5 is not chemically inert and demetallates rapidly while the gadolinium complex grafted onto the nanoparticle exhibit almost equal kinetic inertness as Gd-DTPA (Magnevist). The bulky nanoparticle probably rigidifies the structure of the complex and prevents Gd(III)-L@2H3 from an extensive demetallation, which was a good point for the possible use of these nanoparticles in living organisms for imaging applications
