The stereochemistry of the Diels-Alder cycloaddition of several dienes to the facially perturbed dienophiles 2,3-norbornenobenzoquinone (3) and 2,3-norbornanobenzoquinone (4) has been examined. Unambiguous structural proof for the adducts formed has been obtained from complementary 'H and I3C NMR spectral data and in two cases through X-ray crystal structure determination. While 1,3-~yclopentadiene1, ,3-~yclohexadienea, nd cyclooctatetraene exhibit preference for addition to 3 from the bottom side, the stereochemical outcome is reversed in their response to 4.1,3-DiphenyIisobenzofuran and 1,2,3,4-tetrachloro-5,5-dimethoxycyclopentadieenneg aged 3 from the top side with marked selectivity, which is further enhanced in their reaction with 4. The observed stereoselectivities seem to be essentially controlled by steric interactons at the transition state. Model calculations provide support for this interpretation.
