You will react cyclopentadiene with maleic anhydride to form the Diels-Alder product below. This Diels-Alder reaction produces almost solely the endo isomer upon reaction at ambient temperature.
The preference for endo–stereochemistry is “observed” in most Diels-Alder reactions. The fact that the more hindered endo product is formed puzzled scientists until Woodward, Hoffmann, and Fukui used molecular orbital theory to explain that overlap of the p orbitals on the substituents on the dienophile with p orbitals on the diene is favorable, helping to bring the two molecules together.
Hoffmann and Fukui shared the 1981 Nobel Prize in chemistry for their molecular orbital explanation of this and other organic reactions. In the illustration below, notice the favorable overlap (matching light or dark lobes) of the diene and the substituent on the dienophile in the formation of the endo product:
Oftentimes, even though the endo product is formed initially, an exo isomer will be isolated from a Diels-Alder reaction. This occurs because the exo isomer, having less steric strain than the Endo , is more stable, and because the Diels-Alder reaction is often reversible under the reaction conditions. In a reversible reaction, the product is formed, reverts to starting material, and forms again many times before being isolated.
The more stable the product, the less likely it will be to revert to the starting material. The isolation of an exo product from a Diels-Alder reaction is an example of an important concept: thermodynamic vs kinetic control of product composition. The first formed product in a reaction is called the kinetic product. If the reaction is not reversible under the conditions used, the kinetic product will be isolated. However, if the first formed product is not the most stable product and the reaction is reversible under the conditions used, then the most stable product, called the thermodynamic product, will often be isolated.
The NMR spectrum of cis-5-norbornene-2,3-endo-dicarboxylic anhydride is given below:
Cis-Norbornene-5,6-endo-dicarboxylic anhydride Cyclopentadiene was previously prepared through the cracking of dicyclopentadiene and kept under cold conditions. In a 25 mL Erlenmeyer flask, maleic anhydride (1.02 g, 10.4 mmol) and ethyl acetate (4.0 mL) were combined, swirled, and slightly heated until completely dissolved. To the mixture, ligroin (4 mL) was added and mixed thoroughly until dissolved. Finally, cyclopentadiene (1 mL, 11.9 mmol) was added to the mixture and mixed extensively. The reaction was cooled to room temperature and placed into an ice bath until crystallized. The crystals were isolated through filtration in a Hirsch funnel. The product had the following properties: 0.47 g (27.6% yield) mp: 163-164 °C (lit: 164 °C). 1H NMR (CDCl3, 300 MHz) δ: 6.30 (dd, J=1.8 Hz, 2H), 3.57 (dd, J=7.0 Hz, 2H), 3.45 (m, 2H), 1.78 (dt, J=9.0,1.8 Hz, 1H), 1.59 (m, 1H) ppm. 13C NMR (CDCl3, 75Hz) δ: 171.3, 135.5, 52.7, 47.1, 46.1 ppm. IR 2982 (m), 1840 (s), 1767 (s), 1089 (m) cm-1.
Reaction Mechanism The scheme below depicts the concerted mechanism of the Diels-Alder reaction of cyclopentadiene and maleic anhydride to formcis-Norbornene-5,6-endo-dicarboxylic anhydride.
Results and Discussion When combining the reagents, a cloudy mixture was produced and problems arose in the attempt to completely dissolve the mixture. After heating for about 10 minutes and magnetically stirring, tiny solids still remained. The undissolved solids were removed form the hot solution by filtration and once they cooled, white crystals began to form. Regarding the specific reaction between cyclopentadiene and maleic anhydride, the endo isomer, the kinetic product, was formed because the experiment was directed under mild conditions. The exoisomer is the thermodynamic product because it is more stable.3
A total of 0.47 g of the product was collected; a yield of 27.6%. The melting point was in the range of 163-164 °C which indicates the absence of impurities because the known melting point of the product is 164 °C.
The 1H NMR spectrum of the product revealed a peak in the alkene range at 6.30 ppm, H-2 and H-3 (Figure 1). In addition, it exhibited two peaks at 3.57 and 3.45 ppm because of the proximity of H-1, H-4, H-5, and H-6 to an electronegative atom, oxygen. Finally, two peaks at 1.78 and 1.59 ppm corresponded to the sp3 hydrogens, Hb and Ha, respectively. Impurities that appeared included ethyl acetate at 4.03, 2.03, and 1.31 ppm as well as acetone at 2.16 ppm.
Regarding the 13C NMR, a peak appeared at 171.3 ppm, accounting for the presence of two carbonyl functional groups, represented by C-7 and C-8 in Figure 1. The alkene carbons, C-2 and C-3, exhibited a peak at 135.5 ppm, while the sp3 carbons close to oxygen, C-5 and C-6, displayed a peak at 52.7 ppm. Finally, peaks at 46.1 and 47.1 ppm accounted for the sp3 carbons, C-1 and C-4, and C-9. Impurities of ethyl acetate appeared at 46.6, 25.8, and 21.0 ppm accompanied with acetone at 30.9 ppm.
The IR spectrum revealed a peak at 2982 cm-1 representing the C-H stretches. A peak at 1840 cm-1 accounted for the carbonyl functional group, while a peak at 1767 cm-1 accounted for the alkene bond. A peak at 1089 cm-1 represented the carbon-oxygen functional group.
In order to distinguish between the two possible isomers, properties such as melting point and spectroscopy data were analyzed. The exo product possessed a melting point in the range of 140-145 °C which is significantly lower than the endo product. The observed melting point in this experiment supported the production of the endo isomer. The 1H NMR spectum exhibited a doublet of doublets at 3.57 ppm for the endoisomer. The exo isomer would possess a triplet around 3.50 ppm due to the difference in dihedral angle between the hydrogen molecules of H-1 and H-4, and H-5 and H-6 (Figure 1). A peak at 3.00 ppm would appear in the exo isomer spectra as opposed to a peak at 3.60 ppm as shown in the observed endo product.3 This is because of the interaction and coupling with the H-5 and H-6, as displayed in Figure 1.
Conclusion Through the Diels-Alder reaction, 27.6% yield of cis-Norbornene-5,6-endo-dicarboxylic anhydride was produced. The distinction of the presence of the endoisomer was proven by analyzing physical properties of both possible isomers.

After somewhat more delay than I would have liked, the Green Lab Notebook (GLN) app is now live and available on the iTunes AppStore. The feature set that made its way into version 1.0 was crafted to ensure that editing of multistep reaction experiments and automatic calculation of green chemistry metrics are fully functional, and that importing and exporting features are complete enough to be effective.

A novel method for an efficient regioselective acetylation of carbohydrates and diols in aqueous solution is described.
A novel method for an efficient regioselective acetylation of carbohydrates and diols in aqueous solution is described. Treatment of substrates with 1-acetylimidazole, and tetramethyl-ammonium hydroxide (TMAH) in water under mild conditions gave highly regioselective acetylation for primary hydroxyl groups. This discovery provides an eco-friendly way for selective acetylation of non-protected glycosides and diols in water, avoiding the use of toxic organic solvents and the necessity of pre-protection of secondary hydroxyl groups.
