Reactivity sequences of dipolarophiles are 1,3-dipole specific. Electron-attracting substituents increase the rate constants of alkenes and alkynes towards diazomethane and diphenyldiazomethane in DMF, whereas electron-releasing substituents decelerate; this is in accordance with a predominant HO(diazoalkane) - LU(dipolarophile) control. The cycloadditions of diazomethane are generally faster and more selective than those of diphenyldiazomethane. Similarly substituted ethylenes and acetylenes do not differ much in their dipolarophilic activity.
