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 reactions of 2-heteroaryl-substituted pyrrolidines with acetylenic sulfones proceeded via two pathways. The first involves conjugate addition of the pyrrolidine to the acetylenic sulfone to afford a zwitterion, followed by dissociation of the C−N bond and recombination of the resulting carbocation and vinyl anion to afford the corresponding azepine derivative. The second comprises a cascade of conjugate addition, aza-Cope rearrangement and anionic 6π electrocyclic ring-closure steps. The stability of the carbocation intermediate formed by C−N cleavage determines the dominant pathway.
