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.
Two forms of interdigitated layered arrangements of C-pentylpyrogallolarene (PgC5) have been structurally elucidated and show variations in packing arrangements and host–guest interactions. Molecular dynamics simulations reveal a propensity for formation of self-included dimers, with or without incorporated solvent. Combined gas sorption and PXRD results show the presence of seven forms of PgC5, with and without CO2 (and their interconversions). This is the first CO2 gas sorption study of pyrogallolarenes, and it provides evidence that pyrogallolarenes may act as frustrated organic solids.
