Introduction: In this experiment, we will be performing a Diels- Alder Reaction in order to examine a cyclo-addition reaction. In this reaction, the diene and the dienophile (the reactants) join to create a cyclic molecule. When a 1,3-diene and an alkene undergo this type of addition reaction, a cyclohexene is produced. The diene (conjugated diene), has alternating double and single bonds. The dienophile has an electron-withdrawing substituent group. We will be using anthracene as the diene and maleic anhydride as the dienophile. Balanced Reaction: Table of Reagents: Name Melting
