Dimethyl oxaquadricyclane-2,3-dicarboxylate (1) with cyclooctyne (CO) gave, via carbonyl ylide (3a), a mixture of the exo and endo 1:1 adducts (2a,2b) along with the novel 1:2 adduct (2c), whereas the carbocyclic analogs underwent [σ2s+σ2s+π2s]cycloaddition. The first examples of inverse electron demand homo-Diels-Alder reactions of oxa-, aza- and carbo-norbornadienes with CO were also described.
