Abstract: Two 1,3,8,10-undecatetraenes were synthesized to test the viability of the intramolecular radical cation induced Diels-Alder reaction in the diene - diene format. Cyclization was successful only for the substituted tetraene with the lower oxidation potential. The major hexahydroindene product possessed a trans ring juncture demonstrating a selectivity for the endo stereochemistry.
Keywords: Radical cation; Diels-Alder reaction; intramolecular cyclization
