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.
Acid–base reactions between imidazolin-2-imines (ImRNH) and [U(NMeEt)4] selectively afforded uranium(IV) imidazolin-2-iminato complexes of the type [U(NImtBu)4] (1), [U(NImMes)3(NMeEt)] (2), and [U(NImDipp)2(NMeEt)2] (3) depending on the steric demand of the substituents in the 1 and 3 positions of the imidazole heterocycle (R = tBu, Mes, Dipp). This new class of actinide complexes displays short U–N bonds and nearly linear U–N–C bond angles, suggesting a U–N bond order higher than 1, as well as extraordinarily high catalytic activity in the polymerization of ε-caprolactone.
