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

Three coordination polymers were prepared by the reaction of a new flexible multimodal ligand, bis(2-pyrazylmethyl)sulfide (L), with AgX salts (X = BF4- or PF6-). The polymers showed an increasing dimensionality from 1-1) to 2-D to 3-D, and the influence of solvent and anion on the formation and dimensionality of these coordination polymers was explored. A 1-D twisted ladder-like polymer with andeta;(1)-bound benzene and a 2:1 AgPF6-to-L ratio, 1-MeCN, was formed when benzene was present in the solvent mix. A 2-D undulating sheet with 4.8(2) topology and a 1:1 AgPF6-to-L ratio, 2, was formed when CH2Cl2 was present in the solvent mix. A 3-D network, 3, with two different 4.8(2) nets linked together by 4.8 5 bridging nodes was formed when a 1:1 AgBF4-to-L ratio was used and MeNO2 was present in the solvent mix. Coordination arrays 2 and 3 were found to be related topologically.
