We recognize 131Ba as a SPECT radionuclide, which provides a diagnostic match for the therapeutic alpha-emitting radionuclides 223Ra and 224Ra. The gamma-emitter barium-131 (t½ = 11.5 d) decays with an energy of 123.8 keV (30% intensity) of the first decay via cesium-131 (t½ = 9.7 d) to stable xenon-131, each by electron capture. Our aim was to develop of a straightforward resin-based radiochemical separation to yield 131Ba with high radionuclide purity. Furthermore, the radiolabeling of the complexing agent macropa with [131Ba]Ba2+ using mild labeling conditions was intended. For this purpose, different TLC systems as reaction control were utilized. The radiopharma-cological characterization of 131Ba-labeled macropa in comparison to uncomplexed [131Ba]Ba2+ was carried out in healthy mice, including biodistribution and small animal SPECT/CT experiments.
