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

In 2000, our group reported on the first examples of successful deprotonations of 4-substituted cyclohexanones, using simple magnesium amide base chem., with the com. available chiral amine (R)-(+)-N-benzyl-a-methylbenzylamine. Further applications to asym. deprotonation reactions with alternative chiral base species have now been developed. In particular, new supported C2-sym. magnesium amide bases have been established. In turn, novel sol. and insol. polymers have been applied to the asym. deprotonation reaction of prochiral ketones with superb selectivity (Scheme 1). Furthermore, a supported base recycling protocol has also been developed. [on SciFinder(R)]
