Endo/exo selectivity in the reactions of 5-methylene-2(5H)-furanone, 1, with cyclic dienes has been investigated. Both the kinetic and theoretical studies of the cycloaddition between 1 and cyclopentadiene have permitted to explain the observed selectivity as a direct consequence of a kinetic control over the process. © 1990.
