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 asymmetric unit of the title compound, C16H34N42+ center dot- 2I(-) center dot 2H(2)O, contains one half-cation, one iodide anion and one water molecule. The cation has crystallographically imposed centrosymmetric symmetry. Despite some differences in the unit-cell dimensions, packing analysis on a cluster of 15 cations and a comparison of the hydrogen bonding suggests that this compound is isostructural with its bromide analogue. Intermolecular hydrogen bonding forms eight-membered [H-OH center dot center dot center dot I](2) and [H-N-H center dot center dot center dot I](2) rings and creates a sheet structure.
