Open Access research that is improving renewable energy technology...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers across the departments of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering (MAE), Electronic & Electrical Engineering (EEE), and Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering (NAOME), all of which are leading research into aspects of wind energy, the control of wind turbines and wind farms.

Researchers at EEE are examining the dynamic analysis of turbines, their modelling and simulation, control system design and their optimisation, along with resource assessment and condition monitoring issues. The Energy Systems Research Unit (ESRU) within MAE is producing research to achieve significant levels of energy efficiency using new and renewable energy systems. Meanwhile, researchers at NAOME are supporting the development of offshore wind, wave and tidal-current energy to assist in the provision of diverse energy sources and economic growth in the renewable energy sector.

Abstract

The antibiotic cephalexin [systematic name: d-7-(2-amino-2-phenyl­acet­amido)-3-methyl-8-oxo-5-thia-1-aza­bi­cyclo­[4.2.0]oct-2-ene-2-carboxyl­ic acid] forms a range of isomorphic solvates, with the maximum hydration state of two water mol­ecules formed only at high relative humidities. The water content of the structure reported here (C16H17N3O4S·1.9H2O) falls just short of this configuration, having three independent cephalexin mol­ecules, one of which is disordered, and 5.72 observed water mol­ecules in the asymmetric unit. The facile nature of the cephalexin solvation/desolvation process is found to be facilitated by a complex channel structure, which allows free movement of solvent in the crystallographic a and b directions.
