N-Methyl carbamoylimidazole is a safe and practical alternative to methyl isocyanate for carbamoylation reactions. We have developed a new chemical route for its synthesis from methyl iodide and applied this to the synthesis of N-[11C]methyl carbamoylimidazole as a new [11C]synthon to radiolabel biomolecules for PET imaging research. N-[11C]methyl carbamoylimidazole was prepared from [11C]methyl iodide in 70-74% radiochemical yield (decay corrected) and can be used in situ for further reaction without purification. The reactivity of N-[11C]methyl carbamoylimidazole was demonstrated in a series of [11C]carbamoylation reactions.

The current recommendation prototype on the Apollo Repository will be turned off on 03 February 2023. Although the pilot has been fruitful for both parties, the service provider IKVA is focusing on horizon scanning products and so the recommender service can no longer be supported. We recognise the importance of recommender services in supporting research discovery and are evaluating offerings from other service providers.
