Synthetic and structural investigations into the Diels-Alder reaction and conjugated furans
The Diels-Alder reaction was discovered in 1928 and is still the pre-eminent method for the synthesis of six-membered carbocyclic and heterocyclic rings. This thesis comprises four chapters of results and discussion with the Diels-Alder reaction as a theme. Chapter 2 describes a reinvestigation of a long forgotten double Diels-Alder reaction. Chapters 3 and 4 explore the chemistry of conjugated furans and oligofurans. Chapter 5 explores the Diels-Alder endo/exo selectivity of the archetypal...[Show more]
