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 syntheses of two new, soft, tripodal anions, hydrotris(mercaptothiazolyl)borate (Tz) and hydrotris(mercaptobenzothiazolyl)borate (Tbz), are reported. These species not only extend the series of thiazolylborate anions which call be generated using the protocol of Trofimenko, but analysis of the respective thione melting points and pK(a) values, enables the prediction of which thiazolylborate anions can be produced using borohydride melts. Both of the products are converted into their thallium complexes, which can be used as convenient ligand transfer reagents. The X-ray crystal structure of thaliium(I) hydrotris(2-mercapto-benzothiazolyl)borate, [Tl(Tbz)](infinity), is reported. The ligand complexes to Tl as a C-3 tridentate species, while a bridging thione links Tl(Tbz) units into zigzag one-dimensional polymeric chains.
