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.
A synthetic procedure to access 2-unsubstituted pyrrolidines and piperidines is presented. In the presence of MgI2 as Lewis acid, donor–acceptor cyclopropanes or corresponding cyclobutanes were treated with 1,3,5-triazinanes, leading to the five- or six-membered ring systems under mild conditions in yields up to 93%. This protocol tolerates a great variety of functional groups and thus provides an efficient entry to this class of pyrrolidines and piperidines.
