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.
The transient titanium alkylidyne, (PNP)TiCtBu (PNP = N[2-PiPr2-4-methylphenyl]2–), activates a C–H bond of ethane at room temperature, and a β-hydrogen of the resulting ethyl ligand is subsequently transferred to the adjacent alkylidene ligand to form an ethylene adduct of titanium. Treatment of the ethylene complex with two-electron oxidants such as organic azides results in extrusion of ethene concomitant with formation of a mononuclear titanium imido complex.
