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 terdentate ligands C6H3-2,6-(CH(2)PCy(2))(2) (PCP: Cy = cyclohexyl) in the octahedral solvento complexes trans-[RhCl2(MeOH)(PCP)] and trans-[RhCl2(EtOH)(PCP)] adopt conformations which minimise the interactions between the sterically demanding Cy groups and the trans chlorides. Comparison of these structures with those of related molecules, including square-pyramidal and square-planar species, suggests an explanation for the different structural types obtained as products from reactions of RhCl3.3H(2)O and various ligands C6H4-1,3-(CH(2)ER(2))(2) with E = N or P.
