General description

Methyl coumalate is a 2-pyrone and acts as dienophile in Diels-Alder reaction. It reacts with 1,3-butadienes at 100°C to yield tetrahydrocoumarins and 4-methoxycarbonyltricyclo[3.2.1.02,7]octenes. It also reacts with cyclohexadiene to afford tetrahydronaphthalene-2-carboxylate. It undergoes Diels-Alder reaction with unactivated alkenes to afford para-substituted adducts.

Application

Methyl coumalate has been used as reagent in phosphine-catalyzed [4+3] annulation of modified allylic carbonates. It was also used in the preparation of 7-carboxyquinolizinium derivatives.

A phosphine-catalyzed [4 + 3] annulation of modified allylic carbonates with methyl coumalate was developed. This strategy offered a powerful method for the construction of bicyclo[3.2.2]nonadiene skeleton with high stereoselectivity.
Articles
The Diels–Alder reaction is the reaction between a conjugated diene and an alkene (dienophile) to form unsaturated six-membered rings. Since the reaction involves the formation of a cyclic product via a cyclic transition state, it is also referred to as a "cycloaddition".
