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 sulfonated o-acetylamino arylazo compound unexpectedly cyclised to a cationic benzo-1,2,4-triazinium species under thermal or acid conditions, reversible with base. The same substrate underwent trans to cis-azo photoisomerisation, observable by NMR spectroscopy, under steady state laser irradiation conditions.
