Abstract: A preparation method for Gd-ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid disodium salt dihydrate (ETDA) complex-immobilized silica particles (Gd-EDTA/SiO2) is proposed. Preparation of spherical silica particles was performed by a sol-gel method at 35°C using 0.2 M tetraethylorthosilicate, 25 M H2O, and 0.01 M NaOH in ethanol, which produced silica particles with an average size of  nm. Immobilization of Gd-EDTA on the silica particles was conducted at 35°C by introd…
