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.
This paper describes the synthesis of a series of PdIV complexes of general structure (N∼C)2PdIV(O2CR)2 (N∼C = a rigid cyclometalated ligand; O2CR = carboxylate) by reaction of (N∼C)2PdII with PhI(O2CR)2. The majority of these complexes undergo clean C−O bond-forming reductive elimination, and the mechanism of this process has been investigated. A variety of experiments, including Hammett plots, Eyring analysis, crossover studies, and investigations of the influence of solvent and additives, suggest that C−O bond-forming reductive elimination proceeds via initial carboxylate dissociation followed by C−O coupling from a 5-coordinate cationic PdIV intermediate. The mechanism of competing C−C bond-forming reductive elimination from these complexes has also been investigated and is proposed to involve direct reductive elimination from the octahedral PdIV centers.
