Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
The hydride and PhC2H complexes, Ru5(CO)14(μ6-C)[Pt(PBut3)](μ-H)2, 2, and Ru5(CO)13(μ5-C)(PhC2H)[Pt(PBut3)], 3, were obtained from the reactions of Ru5(CO)15(C)[Pt(PBut3)], 1, with hydrogen and PhC2H, respectively. Styrene was formed catalytically when hydrogen and PhC2H were allowed to react with 3 in combination, and the complex Ru5(CO)12(μ5-C)[PtPBut3](PhC2H)(μ-H)2, 4, containing both hydrides and a PhC2H ligand was formed. The catalysis is promoted by the presence of the platinum atom in the complexes.
