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

High-field lithium-7 n.m.r. spectroscopy and molecular mass measurements are shown to provide an important guideline into the nature of the species present in benzene and toluene solutions of a representative selection of amido- and imido-lithium derivatives. The compounds have solid-state structures ranging from hexameric to tetrameric clusters {[Ph(But)CNLi]6(3), [(Me2N)2CNLi]6(4), [Ph(Me2N)CNLi]6(5), to (Ph2CNLi·NC5H5)4(2)(NC5H5= pyridine)}, to trimeric and dimeric rings {[(PhCH2)2NLi]3(6) and (But2CNLi·hmpa)2(1)(hmpa = hexamethylphosphoramide), [(PhCH2)2NLi·OEt3]2(7), with probably n= 2 for [PhN(H)Li·hmpa]n(8), and [(C6H11)2NLi·hmpa]n(10)}, and to a likely monomer {[(Bun)(C5H5N)Li·2(NC5H8)]n(9)}, yet even more diverse behaviour has been detected in solution. Thus while some of the compounds essentially retain their solid association states [hexameric (3), (4), (5), dimeric (8), and monomeric (9)], others engage in concentration-dependent equilibria also involving monomeric species [tetrameric (2), trimeric (6), dimeric (1) and (10)], and one complex [dimeric (7)] loses donor on dissolution before rearranging to a trimer and a monomer.
