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 synthesis and characterization of a 2,4-diimino-3-phosphinopentene anion (γ-phosphino-β-diketiminate) is reported and enables diversification of the β-diketiminate ligand framework, which has been widely employed across the periodic table. Phosphines are observed to adopt the γ-position of the ligand rather than the N,N‘ chelate. While aluminum and lithium adopt the familiar N,N‘ chelate arrangement with the new 2,4-diimino-3-phosphinopentene anion ligand, reactions with AsCl3 or SbCl3 result in substitution at the β-methyl position on the ligand backbone, realizing novel P→E (E = As or Sb) intramolecular coordination. The chemistry of the 2,4-diimino-3-phosphinopentene anion can be monitored by the 31P NMR chemical shifts, which are distinctively diagnostic of the coordinative engagement of the ligand.
