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 chemoselective C–O bond functionalization of benzofuran with an aluminum dihydride may be catalyzed by zirconocene dichlorides. The reaction proceeds with the formal addition of a C–O bond to, and elimination of dihydrogen from, aluminum. The product of C–O bond alumination reacts with benzaldehyde via insertion of the carbonyl into the newly formed Al–C bond.
