Abstract

Taking into account the four conditions required by McIver and Komornicki to characterize a transition state, the most convenient technique for locating the transition states of the cyclization of the carbonyl ylide CH 2=O+-CH2- and of its 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition to ethylene is discussed, taken as examples for electrocyclic reactions and for cycloadditions, respectively. The strategy adopted seems to be adequate for studying any reaction.
