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 rapid synthesis of thiophene-based TAK-779 analogues 1 is reported using a late-stage diversification strategy. At the end of the synthesis, the key building block 2, which was prepared in six steps from thiophene, was arylated regioselectively at the α-position directly with iodoarenes. Since 2 offers several reactive positions, various established catalyst systems were tested. It was found that Crabtree catalyst (an Ir catalyst) converted efficiently and selectively the thiophene system 2 into 2-aryl-substituted compounds 9. The direct C–H arylation of 2 with electron-rich iodoarenes led to high yields, whereas electron-deficient iodoarenes required longer reaction times for complete conversion. A small set of diverse amides 1 was synthesized by hydrolysis of 9 and subsequent HATU coupling with primary amines 4.
