yeah I was thinking that
@aaronq I forgot how the orbitals line up though, the ENDO vs Exo stuff
hmm havent done this in a while and I need to draw this out, but i'm about to log off. Maybe @Zela101 can help ya out?
This reaction is like very important in organic II, and one of the few ways to make a ringed system. I don't remember exactly, i.e. stereochemistry though like what |dw:1450236258542:dw|
I haven't done diels-alder before..I'll come to this post again next semester!
Well it's an important reaction where you start off with an electron rich diene. a conjugated compound. after every other carbon carbon bond there's a double bond. See below |dw:1450236620043:dw| The other molecule is called a dieneophile. contains a double bond that's electron deficient and the two react via a cyclo addition. |dw:1450236486609:dw| |dw:1450236505178:dw|
IDK if the stereochemistry changes but does the attack come from the front or the backside?
@Zela101 this type of reaction is a bit different because it all happnes in one step and it depends hm let me draw this.
Take a look at this |dw:1450236742171:dw|
Oh, that's simple.
Yeah essentially that's what happens, like the products you get though in terms of stereochemistry depend on the orbit overlap that's what i'm not too keen on. |dw:1450236841230:dw|
getting the product is not that bad but understanding the stereochemistry I feel is more important .
THEY'RE BOTH IMPORTANT
