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

Indoles, including tricyclic derivatives, are produced by cyclisations of aryl radicals onto vinyl halides followed by elimination of halide radical and tautomerism of the resulting product; the aryl radicals are produced using clean methodology either by reaction of iodide ions with arenediazonium salts or by reaction of phosphorus-centred radicals with aryl iodides.
