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.
In this work, we have successfully determined that the aromatic amide-derived nonbiaryl atropisomer/silver complex (silver-Xing-Phos) is an effective catalyst system for the solvent-dependent exo-selective cycloaddition of glycine aldimino esters with chalcones or less-reactive methyl cinnamates to give the corresponding chalcone- or cinnamate-derived pyrrolidines with multiple stereogenic centers in good yields and high diastereoselectivities as well as excellent enantioselectivities. Remarkably, it is the first example of highly enantioselective silver-catalyzed [3 + 2] cycloaddition of methyl cinnamates with glycine aldimino esters.
