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

A range of functionalised dienes and trienes have been prepared by one-pot processes in which alcohol oxidation is accompanied by in situ Wittig homologation using Trippett's reagent [(triphenylphosphoranylidene)acetaldehyde] followed by addition of a second stabilised phosphorane. This procedure has been applied to alpha-hydroxy carbonyl compounds and activated benzylic alcohols.
