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 reaction of (COD)PdCl2 (COD = 1,5-cyclooctadiene) with bis(3-pyridyl)methylphenylsilane (L) in acetone affords single crystals consisting of cyclodimers, [PdCl2(L)]2, whereas the reaction in a mixture of dichloromethane and ethanol yields amorphous spheres consisting of cyclotrimers, [PdCl2(L)]3. The interconversion and morphology control between the crystals and the microspheres can be explained by the difference in flexibility between the cyclodimer and cyclotrimer.
