High pressure mediated Diels-Alder reactions of 3,4-dimethoxyfuran with cyclohexene-1,2-dicarboxylic anhydrides and cyclopentene-1,2-dicarboxylic anhydride followed by catalytic hydrogenstion produced 11-oxatricyclo[,7]undecane-endo-2,7dicarboxylic anhydrides and 10-oxatricyclo[,6]decane-endo-2,6-dicarboxylic anhydride albeit in low yields. Reactions of N-methylpyrrole and pyrrole with dichloromaleic anhydride at high pressure resulted in Friedel-Crafts type of acylation.
