One hundred years after the birth of Kurt Alder and seventy-five years after the discovery of his famous reaction, one of the most important and fascinating transformations in chemistry, research on that process continues to surprise, excite, delight, and inform the chemical community. This article is based on presentations given first at the University of Cologne, Germany (Kurt Alder lecture, 1992), then at the Roger Adams Award Symposium (1993), and later at the Bürgenstock Conference of 2001… Expand
5.09 Intermolecular Diels–Alder Reactions
The Diels–Alder reaction is one of the most powerful carbon–carbon bond-forming reactions and is a versatile tool for the synthesis of many bioactive natural products. Since it was first shown thatExpand
Oxazaborolidines as catalysts for enantioselective cycloadditions: now [2+2]!
TLDR
The research by Corey and co-workers focused on asymmetric catalysis with Lewis acids derived from aluminum, boron, or titanium, and Oxazaborolidine catalysts such as 1 have proven successful in the enantioselective Corey–Bakshi–Shibata(CBS) reduction over the past 20 years. Expand
Enantioselective Diels-Alder reactions catalyzed by hydrogen bonding.
TLDR
It is suggested that pi,pi-stacking plays an central role in the overall catalytic cycle, in particular, the enantioselective step. Expand
Intramolecular and Transannular Diels-Alder Reactions
Few reactions can compete with the Diels–Alder (DA) [4+2] cycloaddition for the rapid and efficient generation of molecular complexity. The DA reaction is atom-economic and stereospecific, as well asExpand

TLDR
This Review deals with one aspect of such catalysis which has emerged only in the past six years: the generation and application of super-Lewis acidic chiral oxazaborolidinium ions for enantioselective catalysis. Expand
Anion-π Catalysis of Diels-Alder Reactions.
TLDR
Hydroxypyrones, oxa-, and thiazolones are explored because they provide access to anionic dienes and their [4+2] cycloaddition with cyclic and acyclic dienophiles, such as maleimides and fumarates, affords bicyclic products with four new stereogenic centers. Expand
Asymmetric catalysis of Diels-Alder reactions with in situ generated heterocyclic ortho-quinodimethanes.
TLDR
This work documents the first asymmetric catalytic Diels-Alder reaction of in situ generated heterocyclic ortho-quinodimethanes (oQDMs), reactive diene species that have never before succumbed to a catalytic approach. Expand

Organocascade reactions of enones catalyzed by a chiral primary amine.
TLDR
It is shown that chiral primary amine catalysis offers a powerful alternative in the design of novel and synthetically useful organocascade reactions, thus providing a practical solution to the issue of activating a,b-unsaturated ketones toward a well-defined enamine–iminium tandem sequence. Expand
