The Diels-Alder reaction: a mainstay of organic chemistry

The Diels-Alder reaction is one of the most important in Organic Chemistry and plays a role in the synthesis and manufacture of many products including pharmaceutical ingredients (including vitamins and drugs), agrochemicals (including fungicides), flavors, fragrances, and more. The reaction is also found in nature, in the synthesis of natural products. Background: *Boger, D. & Weinreb, S. (1987). Hetero Diels-Alder Methodology in Organic Synthesis. Organic…
