  • thanks Adam so the URL for the paper we had issues was https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/anie.200604472 We often have trouble with Readcube and our firewall anyway so I wasn't too surprised so it may be a problem with that
  • Hi thanks Adam, yes I have a sample snapshot of what I mean, what's the best way of showing you I cant seem to paste images directly onto the forum?
  • Thank you thats perfect sorry for not noticing on the website
