Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Abstract

A new category of 'inverse crown' complex has been established through the synthesis of the disodium-dimagnesium diisopropylamide [Na2Mg2{N(Pr-i)(2)}(4)(mu-H)(2).(toluene)(2)], the first such complex to exhibit hydride encapsulation, a non-planar octagonal 'host' ring or solvent stabilisation.
