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 molecular structures of naphtho[1,8-cd][1,2]dithiole, naphtho[1,8-cd][1,2]diselenole, naphtho[1,8-cd][1,2]ditellurole, naphtho[1,8-cd][1,2]dithiole I-oxide, naphtho[1,8-cd][1,2]dithiole 1,1-dioxide, and naphtho[1,8-cd][1,2]dithiole 1,1,2-trioxideand naphtho[1,8-cd][1,2]dithiole 1,1,2,2-tetroxide are compared. The E-E distance varies, broadly reflecting the degree of distortion imposed by the rigid naphthalene backbone as well as the degree of oxidation at sulfur. The naphthalene backbone imposes shortening of E-E bond lengths when E = S and Se compared to Ph-E-E-Ph systems but is itself subject to distortion as a consequence of the steric bulk of the E atoms.
