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 reaction of 1,4-dimethyl-piperazine and 3-hy-droxy-2-naphthoic acid gives the title 1:1 salt, C(6)H(15)N(2) (+)·C(11)H(7)O(3) (-), with a singly protonated piperazinium cation. In the crystal, a single N-H⋯O hydrogen bond links the cations and anions into discrete pairs and the aromatic anions stack along the crystallographic a-axis direction. This results in layers of cations and anions alternating along the crystallographic c-axis direction. An intra-molecular O-H⋯O hydrogen bond is also present.
