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.
A rare example of chemospecificity in the tandem Diels–Alder reaction of activated alkynes and bis-dienes has been revealed. The reaction between bis-furyl dienes and DMAD occurs at 25–80 °C and leads to kinetically controlled “pincer” adducts, 4a,8a-disubstituted 1,4:5,8-diepoxynaphthalenes. On the contrary, only thermodynamically controlled “domino” adducts (2,3-disubstituted 1,4:5,8-diepoxynaphthalenes) are formed in the same reaction at 140 °C. The “pincer” adducts can be transformed to the “domino” adducts at heating. The rate constants for reactions of both types were calculated using dynamic 1H NMR spectroscopy.
