The Diels-Alder mono-adducts between 4,6-dimethyl-2-pyrone and olefinic dienophiles could be isolated from the low temperature photochemical reactions. The adducts reacted with second olefins to afford cross-adducts with the concurrent decarboxylation. Irradiation of the cross-adducts to p-benzoquinone gave cage compounds.
