Paper Abstract

Hormonal steroids such as 17α-estradiol derivatives, labelled with organometallic moieties, have been tested as markers for hormone receptor assay. Among the organometallic labels used were: Cr(C0)3 and Cr(C0)2(CS), which can be attached to the A ring of the steroid, and Co2(C0)6 and Mo2(7-15-05H5)(C0)4, which can be bonded to acetylenic groups in the 1713-position of the five-membered ring of the steroid. The new analytical approach is based on the FT-IR detection of the υ(CO) modes of the organometallic markers. The present estradiol-receptor detection level for 10,000-20,000 scans at 4 cm-1 resolution is about 100 fM, i.e., in the neighbourhood of physiological levels.
