Discover Open Access research at Strathprints

It's International Open Access Week, 24-30 October 2016. This year's theme is "Open in Action" and is all about taking meaningful steps towards opening up research and scholarship. The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde research outputs. Explore recent world leading Open Access research content by University of Strathclyde researchers and see how Strathclyde researchers are committing to putting "Open in Action".

This chapter reviews original highlights in the chemistry of the Group 16 elements reported during 2003. The bulk of the review focuses on the chemistry/interaction of the chalcogens with other p-block elements. Due to the vast abundance and diversity of research into chalcogen chemistry, the report has been limited to materials with discrete molecular structure, either as novel products or reagents, or obtained by new synthetic strategies. The most important advances in 2003 include the isolation of hitherto unknown functionalities or bonding modes, unusual, unique or unexpected structures and a fascinating ferromagnet.
