Abstract: The aqueous Diels-Alder reaction of 1,3-cyclohexadiene with 1,4-benzoquinone was compared and contrasted to the same reaction catalyzed with Flextyl P™, a novel Ti(IV) performance catalyst. The catalyst improved conversion by 22% versus the uncatalyzed reaction and represents a rare example of a Ti(IV) catalyzed Diels-Alder reaction in water.
Keywords: Diels-Alder reaction; aqueous; cyclohexadiene; benzoquinone; Lewis acid catalysis; green chemistry; water-soluble Lewis acid catalyst.
