This data file describes the synthetic protocol for preparation of the original 2,6-di(bromomethyl)-3,5-bis(alkoxycarbonyl)-4-aryl-1,4-dihydropyridines. In total, 6 unpublished compounds were obtained and characterised. The 2,6-di(bromomethyl)-1,4-dihydropyridines are mainly used as intermediates for synthesis of various lipid-like compounds based on 1,4-dihydropyridine cycle. All the structures of 2,6-di(bromomethyl)-1,4-dihydropyridines were confirmed by Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR, including 1H NMR and 13C NMR) data. The data provided herein are directly related to the previously published research article – “Novel cationic amphiphilic 1,4-dihydropyridine derivatives for DNA delivery”  where three derivatives (2,6-di(bromomethyl)-4-phenyl-1,4-dihydropyridines 2a-c) from six presented in this data file were used as starting materials in synthesis of amphiphilic 1,4-dihydropyridines without any purification and characterisation. Synthesis of other three 2,6-di(bromomethyl)-3,5-bis(alkoxycarbonyl)-4-aryl-1,4-dihydropyridines 2d-f and their characterisation are reported herein at the first time. Information provided in this data file can be used in organic synthesis by other chemists to develop synthetic strategies for the construction of various cationic 1,4-dihydropyridine derivatives and related heterocycles.
