Objective: The goal of this experiment was to synthesize cis-norbornene-5, 6-end-dicarboxylic anhydride from maleic anhydride. This synthesis is done by a cycloaddition reaction involving 1,4-addition of conjugated dienes, in which two sigma bonds are formed from two pi bonds. Reaction Equations: Procedure: Step 1: Place a 0.2 g of powdered maleic anhydride and 1.0mL of ethyl acetate into a test tube. Step 2: Add 1.0 mL of Ligroin.

Step 3: Then add 0.2 mL of dry cyclopentadiene, mix, and observe the reactions. Step 4: Then allow the test tube to cool down the room temperature by running cold water from the sink over it. This should help with the crystallization process. Step 5: Next remove the solvent by vacuum filtration and leave the crystals in the funnel for a few minutes with the water running to help them dry. Step 6: Once dry, find the mass and calculate the yield.
