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

While CH ‥ Li interactions are implicated in the solid-State structure of trimeric dibenzylamidolitium in contrast to those of its dimeric complexes, spectroscopic studies on their coloured solutions linked to predictive MO calculations, provide firm evidence for such interactions, with colours being due to benzyl → Li charge transfer in low-association species.
