Synthesis and Diels-Alder reactions of carbohydrate-derived dienes and their carbocyclic analogs The effects of allylic and remote substituents on facial selectivity

The Diels-Alder reactions of two carbohydrate-derived dienes and their carbocyclic analogs have been examined. The objectives of this study were: (1) to determine the diastereofacial selectivity of Diels-Alder reactions of these dienes and (2) to determine the relationship between the substituents o...
