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 Lewis acid-mediated addition of silyl enolates to easily accessible homochiral N-acylhydrazones derived from 3-amino-2-oxazolidinones proceeded in yields up to 71% and diastereomeric ratios of 99:1. In most cases, optimal reaction conditions entailed the simple use of ZnCl2 in acetonitrile at room temperature. Hydrazones derived from phenyl-, isopropyl-, and benzyl-substituted 2-oxazolidinones were examined in the reaction in terms of yield and diastereoselectivity. The facile SmI2-mediated N−N bond cleavage of the formed hydrazines was demonstrated yielding a β-amino acid derivative. Hence, the overall reaction sequence constitutes an efficient asymmetric Mannich-type reaction. The sense of diastereoselectivity was explained by a preferential attack on the less shielded Si face of the chiral hydrazones and confirmed by means of X-ray crystallography.
