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

Resonance excitation profiles have been obtained for cobalt phthalecyanine at both room temperature and 10 K using a compressed disc of silver and the phthalocyanine. Low-frequency vibrations are shown to be influenced mainly by displacements on the bonding nitrogen, but high-frequency vibrations show a more complex pattern with some evidence that the vibrations v3 and v28 depend on C displacements. By comparison with copper, there appears to be a greater degree of scattering from 0-0 and 0-1 transitions and there is a shift towards increase 0-0 scattering in the sharper low-temperature profiles. It is concluded that a distortion, dynamic at room temperature and static at low temperature, plays a key role in determining the relative scattering and this distortion is larger for copper phthalocyanine than for cobalt phthalocyanine.
