Cycloaddition Reactions: Why Is It So Challenging To Move from Six to Ten Electrons?

Cycloaddition Reactions: Why Is It So Challenging To Move from Six to Ten Electrons?
Karl Anker Jørgensen, Rasmus Mose, Teresa Ann Palazzo
Celebrating cycloaddition reactions with numbers and orbitals: The orbital interaction diagrams for [4+2], [6+4], and [8+2] cycloaddition reactions in the paintings on the wall look simple. However, in reality, it is challenging to move from six to ten electrons for cycloaddition reactions as is discussed by K. A. Jørgensen et al. in their Essay (DOI: 10.1002/anie.201701085). Being successful with [6+4] and [8+2] higher-order cycloaddition reactions deserves a toast and celebrations—as Angewandte Chemie celebrates the 80th birthday of Roald Hoffmann—as illustrated by the flowers with a very special shape.
