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

Crystals of o-phenylenediamidomagnesium tetrahydrofuran prepared at the interface of a sec-butyl-n-butyl magnesium in heptane-o-phenylenediamine in THF bilayered solution, have been shown by an X-ray diffraction study to consist of unprecedented, discrete octahedral Mg-6 clusters, held in place by six bridging, divalent, N-bonding ligands, and solvated by THF molecules to give the Mg atoms a five-coordinate, square-based pyramidal geometry overall.
