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

X-ray crystallographic studies on the lithium diphenylphosphide adducts (Me2NCH2CH2)2NMe2 · LiPPh2 ( 1) and Me2NCH2CH2NMe2 · LiPPh2 (2) are reported. 1 is monomeric, with a terminal PPh2 unit containing a pyramidally coordinated phosphorus atom attached to the four-coordinate metal atom by a Li-P bond of length 2.567(6) Å. 2 crystallizes as dimers, (Me2NCH2CH2NMe2 · LiPPh2)2, with bridging PPh2 units containing (distorted) tetrahedrally coordinated phosphorus atoms: their planar (LiP)2 rings are roughly square-shaped (mean PLiP angle 91°, mean LiP distance 2.61 Å). Discussion of features of these structures is facilitated by ab initio MO calculations on the model systems LiPH2 and (LiPH2)2. Cryoscopic molecular mass measurements and high-field 7Li/31P NMR spectroscopic studies on solutions of 1 and 2 indicate that both solid-state structures are retained in arene solution, though some dissociation of2 into monomers is apparent.
