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

This review describes the development. of the anionic soft scorpionate ligand hydrotris(methimazolyl)borate (Tm-Mc), its N-alkyl and N-aryl congeners and draws comparisons where appropriate with its close relatives, the dihydrobis(methimazolyl)borates (Bm(R)). Key features of the interaction of these species with metal centres, including bonding modes, electron-donor properties, M center dot center dot center dot H-B interactions, ligand degradation and metallaboratrane formation are addressed and a summary of the coordination chemistry of these species with both main (Foul) and transition metals is given.
