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

A solvent-free agostically propagated polymeric variant of a previously reported hydride-containing inverse crown molecule has been prepared, namely tetra-mu(2)-diisopropylamido-di-mu(2)-hydrido-dimagnesium(II) disodium(I), [Mg2Na2H2(C6-H14N)(4)]. The asymmetric unit contains two crystallographically independent centrosymmetric molecules, each existing as a cationic eight-membered ring, with alternating metal and N atoms, which acts as a host towards two hydride anions. The metal amide rings are linked via Na (.) (.) (.) C agostic interactions to produce one-dimensional polymeric chains propagating along the crystallographic b direction.
