Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast agents rely on supramolecular interactions for their function, since they rely on solvent exchange at a coordination complex. This chapter explores the ideas that underpin MRI, and goes on to discuss the importance of complex stability and the challenges inherent to responsive complexes that can detect changes in biology.
