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 diisopropylphosphanyl-substituted anthracenes i-Pr2P(C14H9) (1a), i-Pr2P(C14H8)Br (2a), and (i-Pr2P)2(C14H8) (3a) and some of their oxidation products were prepared from 9-bromoanthracene and 9,10-dibromoanthracene, respectively. Low-temperature 1H NMR spectra of the 9-monophosphanyl-substituted anthracenes 1a and 2a are in accordance with a staggered conformer, while above room temperature dynamic processes occur. The low-temperature NMR spectrum of the 9,10-diphosphanylanthracene 3a indicates the presence of two different rotational isomers. The rotational barrier for 1a was determined from variable-temperature 1H NMR spectra to be 56 kJ mol−1 (ΔG298K). The crystal structure determinations show the solid-state conformers to be consistent with the prevailing conformer at low temperature.
