Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

Investigation of the tropical sponges Axinella damicornis and Stylissa flabelliformis, family Axinillidae, afforded five new bromopyrrole alkaloids (1-5) and thirteen known compounds (6-18). Semi synthesis of S was carried out in order to confirm its structure. The structures of the isolated compounds were elucidated using ID- And 2D-NMR spectroscopy and mass spectrometry. The cytotoxicity, antimicrobial and protein-kinase inhibition activities were tested for the isolated compounds.
