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 addition of various nucleophiles to a vinyl 1,2,4-oxadiazole is described. Following optimisation, individual protocols tuned for the use of each specific class of reagent have been developed to allow the installation of nitrogen, sulfur, oxygen, and carbon nucleophiles, and leading to the preparation of a series of compounds containing the pharmaceutically important oxadiazole motif.
