A semi-empirical equation to estimate the hydration number of Mn(II) complexes was derived from a database of 49 previously published 1H longitudinal Nuclear Magnetic Relaxation Dispersion profiles. This equation has the longitudinal 1H relaxivity and the molecular weight of the Mn(II) complex under consideration as parameters. View Full-Text
