possible THE DIELSALDER REACTION The DielsAlder reaction occurs with high levels of stereoselectivity The reaction proceeds via a syn addition and as such the relative stereochemistry of substituents contained on the diene and the dienophile is maintained over the course of the reaction Thus reaction of butadiene with a cis substituted dienophile leads to the cis product whereas reaction of butadiene with a transsubstituted dienophile leads to the trans product By the same token dienes in which the substituents at the 1 and 4 positions occupy the same orientation in the scis configuration both groups either Routside or Rinside will give the cis product whereas those having substituents that occupy different orientations one substituent Routside and one substituent Rinside will give the corresponding trans product Stereochemistry of the dienophile is maintained 6 ECO2Me A acone I gt cisproduct 002Me 002Me cis 002M e 002 M e K J Agt U trans product MeOzc quot39c02M e trans Stereochemistry of the diene is maintained Rout R Rin A or gt clsproduct Rin R Rout symmetrical orientation Rout R Rin gt trans product u unsymmetrical orientation The same principles hold true when looking at a DielsAlder reaction in which both the diene and the dienophile bear substituents Thus for the reaction below note that the stereochemistry of the diene is maintained symmetrical orientation of groups leads to cis relative stereochemistry in the product as is that of the dienophile cis dienophile leads to cis relative stereochemistry in the product CH3 9H3 coch3 coch3 E A O
