Understanding our future through Open Access research about our past...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Centre for the Social History of Health & Healthcare (CSHHH), based within the School of Humanities, and considered Scotland's leading centre for the history of health and medicine.

Research at CSHHH explores the modern world since 1800 in locations as diverse as the UK, Asia, Africa, North America, and Europe. Areas of specialism include contraception and sexuality; family health and medical services; occupational health and medicine; disability; the history of psychiatry; conflict and warfare; and, drugs, pharmaceuticals and intoxicants.

Abstract

While CH ‥ Li interactions are implicated in the solid-State structure of trimeric dibenzylamidolitium in contrast to those of its dimeric complexes, spectroscopic studies on their coloured solutions linked to predictive MO calculations, provide firm evidence for such interactions, with colours being due to benzyl → Li charge transfer in low-association species.
