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.

Lewis base stabilized lithium TMP-aluminates: an unexpected fragmentation and capture reaction involving cyclic ether 1,4-dioxane

Abstract

Three Lewis base variations of the synthetically useful aluminate [L?Li(TMP)(iBu)Al(iBu)2], where L is TMPH, Et3N or PhC(LO)NiPr2, are reported, together with the reaction of the benzamide complex with 1,4-dioxane, which surprisingly leads to fragmentation of the cyclic ether and capture of its alkoxy vinyl ether residue within a novel dilithium dialuminium hexaalkyl aggregate.
