Conjugated systems and pericyclic reactions

Molecules with conjugation can undergo some interesting and useful reactions! We will be learning about the Diels-Alder reaction, including how to predict the stereochemistry and regiochemistry of the product based on the diene and dienophile.

What’s the big deal? Actually, the Diels-Alder reaction is a very big “diel” because it is commonly used in organic synthesis. Learn how to “diel” with this classic reaction in this tutorial.
