Abstract  

An automated continuous flow process has been developed for the synthesis of11C-ethanol and11C-butanol. These alcohols were synthesized via the same route. The reaction of11CO2 with methylmagnesium bromide or with n-propylmagnesium chloride, followed by a lithium aluminum hydride reduction and hydrolysis produced respectively11C-ethanol and11C-butanol. Preparation can be completed in 25 min. In each case the radiochemical purity, as determined by high pressure liquid chromatography /HPLC/ was greater than 98%. Biological quality control shows that the products are suitable for human use. The process has been completely automated to limit radiation exposure to personnel, reduce preparation time, and increase reproducibility.
