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 1,4-addition of the lithium enolate of methyldithioacetate (LMDTA) to (±)-4-O-TBS-2-cyclohexenone (3) can be varied from being highly 3,4-trans selective to being highly 3,4-cis selective simply by varying the reaction temperature. This stereodivergency allows expedient syntheses of the corresponding trans and cis methyl esters 6t and 6c and derived bicyclic ketolactones 7t and 7c.
