Stepwise or Concerted? DFT study on the mechanism of Ionic Diels Alder reaction of chromans

Mina Haghdadi, Soghra Mousavi, Hassan Ghasemnejad


The stepwise and concerted Ionic Diels-Alder reaction between phenyl (pyridin-2-yl methylene) oxonium and styrene derivatives are explored using theoretical method. The results support using computational method via persistent intermediates. The DFT method was essential to reproduce a reasonable potential energy surface for these challenging systems.
