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.
Benzo[f]pyrido[1,2-a]indole-6,11-diones have been synthesized in high yields by copper(II)-catalyzed three-component reactions of acyl bromide, 1,4-naphthoquinone, and pyridine (or isoquinoline) via sp2–C–H difunctionalization of naphthoquinone followed by intramolecular cyclization and oxidative aromatization. In an attempt to expand the reaction scope and to help clarify the reaction mechanism, 1,3-dicarbonyl compounds are used in place of acyl bromides to take part in this reaction, and the benzo[f]pyrido[1,2-a]indole-6,11-diones derivatives are also obtained in excellent yields.
