Diels-Alder cycloaddition of 1,3-disubstituted butadienes to isoquinolinopyrrolinediones gives two cycloadducts, the previously reported cis-endo (regarding the dioxopyrroline ring) adduct and the new cis-exo adduct, with a variable ratio largely depending on the solvent and temperature of the reaction. Determination of their stereochemistries and isomerization experiments proved that the former adduct is a kinetic and the latter adduct is a thermodynamic product. Acceleration of dissociation and recombination of the former to the latter adduct in polar solvents (such as CHCl3) was also suggested.
