Short summary
The efficiency of MRI contrast agents can increase by exploiting magnetization transfer effects occurring in slow-rotating nanoparticles containing a paramagnetic metal ion and a large number of exchangeable surface protons, which can increase the water proton relaxation rate. Occurrence of magnetization transfer should also be considered to determine accurate metal–proton distances from the experimental proton relaxation rates for protons farther than 15 Å from the paramagnetic metal.
