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.
Lithium cyclopentadienide adds to a variety of isocyanates [R−NCO, R = tert-butyl (a), n-butyl (b), cyclohexyl (c), phenyl (d), 3-pyridyl (e), 2-tetrahydropyranyl (f), adamantyl (g)] to yield the monocarbamoyl-substituted cyclopentadienides C5H4CONHR- 3 admixed with varying amounts of the respective 1,2-dicarbamoyl-substituted C5H3(CONHR)2- systems 4 and a corresponding quantity of the C5H5- starting material. Subsequent treatment of these reaction mixtures with anhydrous FeCl2 gave the 1,1‘-dicarbamoylferrocenes 6 and the corresponding monocarbamoylferrocenes 5, which were easily separated by chromatography. The carbamoylferrocenes 5b, 5c, and 6d were characterized by X-ray crystal structure analyses. The (N-phenyl- and (N-adamantylcarbamoyl)cyclopentadienides were treated with CpTiCl3 to give the carboxamide-substituted titanocene dichloride complexes [Cp(C5H4CONHR)TiCl2] 8a (R = Ph) and 8b (R = adamantyl), respectively. Complex 8b was also characterized by X-ray diffraction. The valine ester-derived isocyanate reacts with lithium cyclopentadienide to give the N-valinyl-substituted carbamoylcyclopentadienide 3h. Subsequent treatment with FeCl2 or FeCl2/CpLi, respectively, produces the 1,1‘-difunctionalized ferrocene 6h or the monofunctionalized ferrocene 5h. Both complexes were characterized by X-ray crystal structure analyses.
