The syntheses and reactions of 3,4-di(2-furyl)-2,5-dimethylcyclopentadienone (1a) and 2,5-dimethyl-3,4-di(2-thienyl)-cyclopentadienone (1b) are described. They exist as dimers 3a,b at room temperature, while upon heating in solvents, the dimers become monomeric and undergo the Diels-Alder reaction with olefins.
