The complexation of gadolinium (Gd3+) ion with poly(methacrylic acid) and its copolymers was studied. Poly(methacrylic acid-co-acrylamide) formed the tris(carboxylate)-coordinate gadolinium complex with an extra large complex formation constant, while poly(methacrylic acid) formed the biscoordinate complex. Transparent and flexible film containing a high proportion of Gd ion was prepared by casting the complex solution of poly(methacrylic acid-co-methylacrylate). The complexed Gd ion was uniformly dispersed in the film and showed paramagnetism. The formation and magnetic properties of the polymer-Gd complexes are discussed in comparison with those of the corresponding iron complexes.
