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.
This work describes an expeditious and efficient preparation of enantiopure (thiolan-2-yl)diphenylmethanol (2) featuring a double nucleophilic substitution and Shi epoxidation as key steps. One of the applications of its benzyl ether derivative to asymmetric sulfur ylide-mediated epoxidation with up to 92% ee (14 examples) was also demonstrated herein.
