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.
Four cocrystals of (S-ox)(ga) (1), (RS-ox)(ga) (2), (S-ox)(pa) (3), and (RS-ox)(pa) (4) were prepared (S-ox = S-oxiracetam, RS-ox = racemic oxiracetam, ga = gallic acid, pa = 3,4-dihydroxybenzoic acid), and their structures were determined by single X-ray diffraction. In 1/2, two ga molecules link two S-ox/RS-ox molecules through intermolecular hydrogen bonds with a new R22(9) synthon to form a tetramer, the tetramers are further linked by intertetramer hydrogen bonds to generate a 2D sheet, and the adjacent 2D sheets are connected by intersheet hydrogen bonds to form the 3D structure of 1/2. In 3/4, the ox molecules form a 1D helical chain through intermolecular hydrogen bonds, and the helical chains are further linked by pa molecules through intermolecular hydrogen bonds to form a 2D sheet. The results of hygroscopic stability experiments indicate that the hygroscopic stability of S-ox is much enhanced after the formation of cocrystal 1.
