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

Two crystalline adducts of sodium amide 1 and 2 adopt contrasting binuclear structures, as revealed by X-ray diffraction. Thus, the bidentate anions are linked to the Na+ ions in a terminal manner in 1 but in a bridging manner in 2. Each structure also displays unusual donor-acceptor coordinations, with HMPA bridging to Na+ in 1, while only two of the three available PMDETA nitrogen centers complex to Na+ in 2.
