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

Co-complexation of a potassium amide with (Bu3Al)-Bu-i in the presence of the tridentate chelating ligand PMDETA results in a series of potassium aluminates of general formula [PMDETA center dot K(mu-amide)(mu-Bu-i)Al(Bu-i)(2)] [where amide = TMP (6); DMP (7); HMDS (8)] which have been characterized by solution NMR spectroscopy and X-ray crystallography. Their solid-state structures contain a central KNAlC ring whose degree of puckering is dictated by the differing interactions between the potassium centre and the aluminium bound anionic ligands.
