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 asymmetric unit of the title compound [systematic name: (R, R)-2,4-bis(4-hydroxyphenyl)-N,N'-dimethyl-3-oxapentane-1,5- diammonium bis(hydrogen sulfate)], C18H26N2O32+center dot-2HSO(4)(-), contains one half-cation and one hydrogen sulfate anion. The cation has crystallographically imposed twofold symmetry with the rotation axis passing through the central ether O atom. Hydrogen bonds between the hydroxy group and amine H atoms of the cation to two hydrogen sulfate anions link the three ions in a ring motif. A three-dimensional network is accomplished by additional O-H center dot center dot center dot O hydrogen bonds between the anions and by N-H center dot center dot center dot O hydrogen bonds between the cations. Disorder with equally occupied sites affects the H-atom position in the anion
