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 diglyme adduct of sodium iodide, NaI·(CH3OCH2CH2)2O, has been structurally characterized by X-ray diffraction. It forms infinite zig-zag chains which, unlike most complexes of the salt, retain NaI bonds. In addition, diglyme molecules bridge pairs of Na atoms through four-co-ordinate O atoms, so representing a new role for this neutral oxygen donor.
