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

Self-assembly yielding supramolecular systems is a relatively new and fascinating area in polymer science. By combining a knowledge of organic and bio-organic chemistry with synthetic polymer chemistry many self-assembling structures can be developed in synthetic polymer systems via exploitation of inter- and/or intramolecular interactions. This review describes some double, triple and quadruple hydrogen bonding systems from the recent literature which have been used in this context.
