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

Lithium structural chemistry continues to surprise as highlighted here by the reaction of Bu(n)Li, aniline and pmdeta, which by analogy with related systems, should yield a simple monomeric complex, when, in fact, an unprecedented trinuclear formulation is produced; in contrast, the corresponding Na system falls into line with predictions, in yielding a dimeric product.
