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.
Pt(II)-catalyzed carbocyclization of benzaldehyde containing a keto-nitrile functionality resulted in the formation, respectively, of isochromenes and spiro-lactones instead of fused lactams and spiro-lactams as was previously reported. The reaction mechanism was proposed, and the products were identified by multidimensional NMR, IR, and X-ray analysis. The structure of these new products was also confirmed by their synthesis in an unambiguous manner using practical and short approaches.
