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.

A new type of structure in sodium amide ring chemistry: crystal structure of [PhCH2(Me)NNa(tmeda)]2 showing a buckled, rather than the normal planar, (NNa)2 cyclic ring, with a cisoid, rather than the normal transoid, arrangement of amido-substituents (tmeda = tetramethylethylenediamine)

Abstract

The red crystalline complex [PhCH2(Me)NNa(tmeda)]2, synthesised from equimolar proportions of PhNa, the secondary amine PhCH2(Me)NH and the Lewis base tmeda (tetramethylethylenediamine, Me2NCH2CH2NMe2), has been structurally identified by X-ray diffraction studies, which reveals a new type of structure based on a buckled (NNa)2 dimeric ring with a cisoid arrangement of amido-substituents.
