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.
[OsH4(PPh3)3] (1) reacts with KH in THF in the presence of 18-crown-6 to form [K(THF)(18-crown-6)][OsH3(PPh3)3] (2), characterized by NMR spectroscopy and X-ray crystallography; cation−anion contact is achieved through three Os−H···K moieties. In contrast, [IrH3(PPh3)3] (6) reacts with KH and 18-crown-6 in THF with redistribution of ligands to produce the known bis-phosphine complex [K(18-crown-6)][IrH4(PPh3)2] (7). This reaction has been followed by NMR spectroscopy, and [IrH2(PPh3)3]- has been identified as a likely intermediate. K[OsH3(PPh3)3] (3) reacts with Bun3SnCl to form the tin-osmium complex [OsH3(SnBun3)(PPh3)3] (8), characterized by NMR spectroscopy and X-ray crystallography. The molecule contains a seven-coordinate osmium center, which can be described approximately as a distorted fac-[OsH3(PPh3)] arrangement, with the SnBun3 moiety capping the OsH3 face.
