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.
A convenient method for the synthesis of tetraalkylanthracenes and -pentacenes by means of ruthenium-catalyzed regioselective C–H alkylation of the corresponding acenequinones was developed. Dialkyldiarylpentacene was also synthesized using chemoselective tandem C–H alkylation/C–O arylation of dimethoxypentacenequinone. It was suggested that a tetraalkylpentacene is stable under air in the dark and possesses an appropriate HOMO level as active material for p-type organic field-effect transistors (OFETs).
