Open Access research with a real impact...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde research outputs.

The Energy Systems Research Unit (ESRU) within Strathclyde's Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering is producing Open Access research that can help society deploy and optimise renewable energy systems, such as wind turbine technology.

Abstract

The hydrolysis of [ClP(-NtBu)]2 with H2O-Et3N in thf, followed by in situ lithiation with nBuLi gives the Li13 cage [{[OP(-NtBu)]2Li2}3(LiCl)6Li(Cl/OnBu)0.5(thf)7], containing a [OP(-NtBu)]22- dianion that is isoelectronic with ligands of the type [(RN)P(-NR)]22-.
