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 effects of chlorobenzene and other non-polar solvent treatments on liquefaction behaviour are extremely varied and depend both upon the coal and liquefaction regime used. The treatments give rise to significant, but non-uniform, conformational changes in the macromolecular structure of bituminous coals. Solvent swelling, NMR and vitrinite reflectance measurements have indicated that the increase in microporosity is accompanied by the formation of additional hydrogen-bonds, with aromatic moieties possibly being less ordered.
