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.
We have first studied the reactions of monoanions [(μ-RE)(μ-E)Fe2(CO)6]− (A, E = Se; B, E = S) with electrophile PhC(Cl)NPh or dianions [(μ-E)2Fe2(CO)6]2− (C, E = Se; D, E = S) with electrophiles PhC(Cl)NR′ (R′ = Ph, p-MeC6H4). While monoanion A was found to react with PhC(Cl)NPh to give expected complexes (μ-RSe)[μ-SeC(Ph)NPh]Fe2(CO)6 (1, R = Me; 2, R = Et; 3, R = m-MeC6H4), monoanion B was found to react with PhC(Cl)NPh to afford unexpected complexes (μ-RS)[η1-SC(Ph)NPh-η1]Fe2(CO)6 (4, R = Me; 5, R = Et). Furthermore, while dianion C reacted with PhC(Cl)NR′ (R′ = Ph, p-MeC6H4) to give expected complexes [μ-SeC(Ph)NR′]2Fe2(CO)6 (6, R′ = Ph; 7, R′ = p-MeC6H4), dianion D was found to react with PhC(Cl)NR′ (R′ = Ph, p-MeC6H4) to afford unexpected complexes [μ-SC(Ph)NR′][η1-C(Ph)NR′-η1]Fe2(CO)6 (8, R′ = Ph; 9, R′ = p-MeC6H4). All the new complexes 1−9 were characterized by elemental analysis and spectroscopy, and complexes 1 and 4−8 were further structurally confirmed by X-ray crystallography.
