[11C]PIB is the most used amyloid plaques-specific positron-emitting radiotracers. The radiosynthesis of this compound, carried out by methylation of its precursor with [11C]methyl triflate in 2-butanone, has been improved optimizing the initial concentration and the purification method. Two HPLC methods were compared: good radiochemical yields, specific activities, and chemical purity above 98% were achieved by using as eluant acetonitrile/citrate and formulation in 10% ethanol.
