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 reaction between C6H4-1,3-(CH2PCy2)2, Cy = cyclohexyl, and RhCl3·3H2O produced trans-[RhCl2(OH2) {C6H3-2,6-(CH2PCy2)2}], [RhCl2(OH2)(PCP)]. The product was characterised spectroscopically and the crystal and molecular structure of its 2-propanol solvate, [RhCl2(OH2)(PCP)·propan-2-ol, C35H61Cl2O2P2Rh, as determined by X-ray analysis. The crystals are monoclinic, space group P21/a, with A = 11.513(1), B = 25.874(2), C = 13.576(1) î.., β = 113.47(6)°, V = 3709.7(3) î..3, M = 749.71, Z = 4. Comparisons with other rhodium-aqua complexes show that the Rh---O distances are extremely sensitive to trans influence, but sensitive to other factors such as the oxidation state or coordination number of the metal ion, or steric crowding. The charge on the complexes appears to exert only a minor influence.
