The first step at higher temperature leads to a twofold contribution: the increase of molecular mobility, which allows easier recombination of diene and dienophile groups, and the triggering of the rD-A reaction, which entail the increase of reactive groups available.
Seeking structural parameters that might enhance antifungal activity, we introduced chlorine, methoxy, and methyl substituents onto the 2,4-diaryl 1,2,3,4-tetrahydroquinoline ring; we also used two different dienophiles for the cycloaddition reaction (anethole and isoeugenol) and performed N-debenzylation of the tetrahydroquinoline derivatives 5a-h.
Therefore, the larger the difference between [omega] index of both diene and dienophile, a higher reactivity is expected.
Dienes and dienophiles were adsorbed separately on different samples of activated silica by dissolving them in organic solvents and adding silica while stirring.
With the new approach, says Corey, "the chemzyme brings together the diene and dienophile in a very specific three-dimensional arrangement that gives only one of the 16 possible products.
This group is extruded during the reaction as nitrogen gas, but has the important effect of improving the energetics of orbital overlap between the dienophile (indole olefin) and the diene (Bodwell and Li, Organic Letters 2002:4, 127).

The signature of reversion, conjugated unsaturation in the backbone, serves as the reaction site for crosslink repair via the Diels-Alder reaction using the dienophile 1,3 bis(citraconimidomethyl) benzene (BCI-MX, Perkalink 900) (ref.
While the use of light as a trigger offers the possibility for an improved spatial and temporal resolution, the use of tetrazine fluorogenic probes allows for turn-on fluorescence on their rapid reaction with dienophiles 2) use these optimized reaction to study apoptosis in cells and tissues by introducing the proposed Cys-cyclobutene non-canonical amino acid into C2A Domain of Synaptotagmin-I followed by the ligation reaction ex vivo and in vivo
22,23) Three reactive diluents were synthesized via Diels-Alder reactions with acrylate monomers, alkoxysilane, triallyl ether, and fluorinated alkyl side chains and were used as the dienophiles.
Also discussed are the reactions of cascade cyclizations, heterocyclization involving enyne-carbodiimides, and new achievements in some classical cycloaddition reactions, such as the Diels-Alder condensation with acetylenic dienophiles, [2+2] cycloadditions with an acetylene component leading to the creation of a cyclobutene ring, and new results in cyclobutene syntheses by [2+2] acyclization of phosphorus containing 1,3-butadiene derivatives synthesized starting with propargyl-type alcohols.
The 1,2,4-triazines can react with electron-rich dienophiles in an inverse electron demand Diels-Alder reaction.
