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 reaction of the multidentate Schiff base species TrenSal, TrenBrSal and TEtSal with copper acetate is reported. The heptadentate ligands generate a tetrametallic L2Cu4OH motif that contains an internalised hydroxide anion. In contrast the hexadentate TEtSal ligand is found to form an open trimetallic motif. The importance of L2Cu4OH to the family of copper ccmplexes with an endohedral hydroxide anion is discussed. [(TrenBrSal)2Cu4OH] [OAc] is analysed by temperature dependent magnetic measurements.
