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.
Protonation of Cp(PMe3)2RuSiCl3 (1) leads to the formation of [Cp(PMe3)2Ru(η2-HSiCl3)]+ (2+), a rare example of a cationic η2-silane complex. The η2-silane coordination in 2+ is confirmed by an X-ray crystallographic study. The short Ru−H and long Si−H interactions in 2+ model the latter stages of hydrosilane oxidative addition to a metal center.
