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 nucleophilic addition of β-lactam-4-ylidenes 2, a type of ambiphilic cyclic amidocarbene, to aryl isocyanates has been studied and their application in organic synthesis has been demonstrated. Thermolysis of spiro[β-lactam-4,2‘-oxadiazolines] 1 in the presence of aryl isocyanates afforded both N-lactam and O-lactam substituted spiro[azetidine-2-one-4,3‘-indole-2‘-one] derivatives 5 and 6 in the total yield of 65−86%. Upon hydrolysis, products 5 and 6 were converted into spiro[azetidine-2-one-4,3‘-indole-2‘-one] 9 that was analogous to known biologically active compounds.
