Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Abstract

In organolithium chemistry evidence is accumulating that lithium atoms situated in abnormally low coordination environments then proceed to interact with nearby CH units of the ligands. For example, the crystal structure of [(PhCH,),NLi], revealed a planar (NLi)3 ring whose formally just two-coordinate metal atoms form close contacts with CHpCoCH portions of the benzyl groups.
