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

When a 1 : 1 (BuNa)-Bu-n-(Bu2Mg)-Bu-n,s mixture is treated with two molar equivalents of TMP(H) (TMP = 2,2,6,6-tetramethyl-piperidide) and one molar equivalent of (-)-sparteine in hydrocarbon medium, a new chiral mixed-metal, mixed alkylamide [{(-)-sparteine}center dot Na(mu-Bu)(mu-TMP)Mg(TMP)] can be isolated.
