Problem 3, Chemistry 0244-2010 In this problem we introduce the Diels-Alder reaction. Let s start with a catalogue - the point is to get a feel for the structural variety that this versatile reaction is capable of producing. a. Write a Diels-Alder reaction that produces a six-membered ring with a single double bond - this is, of course, the mother of all Diels-Alders, and the reaction that we will be varying in the other parts of this question. b. Target: a six-membered ring with two unconjugated double bonds.

Unformatted text preview: c. Can you make a six-membered ring with two conjugated double bonds through a Diels-Alder reaction? helpful information this is a fused system (bicyclo[4.4.0]decane) this is a bicyclic system (bicyclo[4.4.1]undecane) d. Target: a fused bicyclic system - not necessarily the one shown above. e. Target: a bicyclic system - not the one shown above f. Target: a bicyclic system with double bonds in two of the bridges. g. Target: a bicyclic system with double bonds in all three bridges....
