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 catalytic asymmetric conjugate addition of α-cyanoketone pronucleophiles to vinyl ketones promoted by a Y/1 catalyst is described. High enantioselectivity was observed for a range of aromatic vinyl ketones, providing 1,5-dicarbonyl compounds bearing an all-carbon quaternary stereogenic center. The product was successfully converted to a spiro-piperidine entity and a bicyclo[3.3.0]octane framework through either the reduction of nitrile or intramolecular pinacol coupling.
