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.
During the course of a study aimed at constructing azaspirocycles from 2,3-dihydro-4-pyridones, an unexpected product was obtained in the SET ring-opening reaction of photocycloadduct 1. Differences in reactivity between homologues 1 and 2 were observed in the presence of SmI2. Tricyclic ketone 2 afforded azaspiro[5.5]undecane 15 when treated with SmI2; however, when ketone 1 was submitted to similar reaction conditions a double ring-opening/reduction sequence gave cis-piperidinol 10.
