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 4-ferrocenyl-1,3-dithiole-2-thione with diiodine affords an unprecedented 'double' charge-transfer complex; the highly ordered ferrocenium units are held by a supramolecular polyiodide chain, and the material shows evidence of the formation of zigzag magnetic chains below 2 K.
