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 synthesis of trans-[NiBr{C6H3-2,6-(CH2PCy2)2}], Cy = cyclohexyl, and its characterisation by spectroscopy and single crystal X-ray analysis are described. The constraints imposed by the bulky terdentate ligand lead only to minor distortions of the square planar nickel(II) coordination (P---Ni---P = 161.6(1)°). The nickel coordination is compared with those found in related complexes with terdentate N- and P-donor ligands.
