Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The molecule of the title dimeric compound, [Li2Cl2(C13­H30O6P2)2] or [LiCl{[(iPrO)2P(O)]2CH2}]2, lies about an inversion center and features tetrahedrally coordinated Li atoms. The neutral ligands each chelate to one metal center and bridge to the other center through P=O units. Unusually for lithium chloride complexes, the Cl ions are in terminal rather than bridging positions. Principal dimensions include Li-O(four-membered ring) = 1.959 (3) and 2.056 (3) î.., Li-O(phosphonate ring) = 1.929 (3) î.., and Li-Cl = 2.293 (3) î...
