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

Raman and i.r. spectra of complexes of gold(III) with chloride and bipyridyl or 1,10-phenanthroline ligands are reported. The spectra in both the aromatic-ring stretching region and the metal-halide stretching region are assigned. The compounds are four-coordinate. It is concluded that the nitrogen ligands bridge two AuCl3 moieties in (L2)Au2Cl6 compounds and that bipyridyl AuCl3 is a polymer containing planar bipyridyl AuCl2 units bridged by chloride ions.
