Analyses of the spin-lattice relaxation time ([T.sub.1]) and the spin-spin relaxation time ([T.sub.2]) at different concentrations of the molecule (Figure 1(d)) suggest a [T.sub.1] of ~450 ms and [T.sub.2]s, which show significant shortening with increasing concentration.

Therefore, to investigate how the Ca concentration in the [Cu.sub.5][Gd.sub.1-x][Ca.sub.x] system (or rather [H.sub.2][Gd.sub.1-x][Ca.sub.x]) affects the interaction of protons with the host metallic lattice and interpret Figure 8(b) through proton diffusivity and hopping activation energies, we measured the proton spin-lattice relaxation by means of [sup.1]H NMR at proton resonance frequency of 500 MHz, corresponding to a magnetic field of 11.75 Tesla.

The quality of the MRI images depends on three NMR main parameters (the proton spin density, the nuclear spin-lattice relaxation time T1, and the spin-spin relaxation time T2), and the contrast agents (CAs), based on the different distribution of nuclear-spin density along the body, are able to improve the image contrast by increasing (locally) the nuclear relaxation rates [2].

NMR relaxation parameters, especially the nonselective ([R.sup.NS.sub.1]) and selective ([R.sup.SE.sub.1]) spin-lattice relaxation rates of water protons, are useful for investigating the solvent dynamics at the macromolecule-solvent interfaces as well as the perturbation effects caused by the water-macromolecule interactions on the solvent dynamical properties [13-25].
