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 University of Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Department of Computer & Information Sciences involved in mathematically structured programming, similarity and metric search, computer security, software systems, combinatronics and digital health.

The Department also includes the iSchool Research Group, which performs leading research into socio-technical phenomena and topics such as information retrieval and information seeking behaviour.

Two synthetic routes to bifunctional P(V)/P(V) compounds of the type EPR2NP(I)R-2 have been developed. The reaction of Li[(EPPr2NPPr2)-Pr-i-Pr-i] with one molar equivalent of I-2 produces (EPPr2NP)-Pr-i(I)Pr-i(2) (3a-I, E = Se; 3b-I, E=Te). Alternatively, the oxidation of Na[N((PBu2)-Bu-t)(2)] with I-2 in tetrahydrofuran (THF) generates the P(III)/P(V) compound (Bu2PNP)-Bu-t(1)Bu-t(2) (6'-I) which, on treatment with elemental selenium or tellurium in THF, yields (EPBu2NP)-Bu-t(I)Bu-t(2) (3a'-I, E=Se; 3b'-I, E=Te), The acyclic compounds 3a-I, 3a'-I, 3b-I, 3b'-I, and 6'-I have been characterized in solution by multinuclear (H-1, P-31, Se-77, and Te-125) NMR spectroscopy and in the solid state by X-ray structural determinations.
