Dimethyl acetylenedicarboxylate reacts with 4-substituted and 3,4-fused 2-furyl-1,2,3,4-tetrahydroquinoline derivatives at the furan fragment according to the [4 + 2]-cycloaddition pattern. The reaction is not stereoselective, and it yields two diastereoisomeric 7-oxabicyclo[2.2.1]hepta-2,5-dienes whose structure was determined by X-ray analysis and NMR spectroscopy. © 2007 Pleiades Publishing, Ltd.
