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 synthesis of [Ni3(Trensal)2] was investigated in an attempt to analyze its degradation product, Ni6 carbonate cages. Through this investigation, two forms of the [Ni3(Trensal)2] compound were isolated and structurally analyzed for the first time as well as other degraded forms of the parent compound. The synthesis of these carbonate cages was not accomplished through the degradation of [Ni3(Trensal)2], but instead through a more direct synthesis simply using a nickel halide and TMEDA. Further samples of these cages were obtained using bis(cyclooctadiene) nickel(0) and TMEDA.
