A series of novel pyridine-based Gd3+ complexes have been prepared and studied as potential MRI contrast agents for Zn2+ detection. By independent assessment of molecular parameters affecting relaxivity, we could interpret the relaxivity changes observed upon Zn2+ binding in terms of variations of the rotational motion.
