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, [Ag( NO2)-( C14H14N4)](n), contains half of the repeating formula unit (Z ' = 1/2). The Ag-I ion lies on a twofold rotation axis. The primary structure consists of a one-dimensional coordination polymer formed by the Ag-I ions and the bipyridyl azine ligand in which there is an inversion center at the mid- point of the N-N bond. The nitrite anion interacts with the Ag-I ion through a chelating mu(2) interaction involving both O atoms. In the crystal, the coordination chains are parallel and interact through Ag center dot center dot center dot pi [3.220 (2) angstrom] and pi-pi [3.489 (3) angstrom] interactions.
