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 low melting-point, hydrocabon-soluble, and moisture-sensitive crystalline material isolated from the reaction of hydrated lithium chloride with OP(NMe2)3(HMPA) has been shown by X-ray crystallography to be the discrete, internally-ionic complex, [Li·(H2O)2·HMPA]22+·2Cl–; the chloride ions are hydrogen bonded to the cations water molecules, which are terminally bonded to the lithium atoms, while the centre of the cation consists of a planar (LiO)2 ring provided by bridiging, yet formally neuttal, HMPA ligands.
