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.
Both deuterium-labeled experimental and NMR spectroscopic analyses of poly(vinyl ether) offer the mechanistic insight into the polymerization, indicating that the cationic palladium aqua imine−phosphine complexes [(P∼N)PdMe(H2O)]BF4 (P∼N = o-C6H4(PPh2)(NCHAr)) promote the reaction via proton-transfer initiation. Insertion of vinyl ether into the Pd−Me bond in [(P∼N)PdMe(H2O)]BF4 does not proceed, but the single insertion of the same substrate into the Pd−acetal bond of [(P∼N)PdCOCH3(L)]BF4 provides the stable inserted product [(P∼N)PdCH(OEt)CH2COCH3]BF4, which has been characterized by an X-ray structural determination. However, these palladium complexes do not catalyze the polymerization or copolymerization of vinyl ether and carbon monoxide.
