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

Reaction of AlMe3 with NH2(C5H9) caused the evolution of methane and produced the dimeric species bis(μ-cyclo­pentyl­amino-N:N)bis[dimethylaluminium(III)], [Al(CH3)2-(C5H10N)]2, which was found to adopt a cis configuration of cyclopentyl groups about a bent AlNAlN ring (which has twofold crystallographic symmetry) instead of the more common trans arrangement.
