Hydrogen-bonding catalysis by cyclic trialkylsulfonium and tetraalkylammonium salts in an aza-Diels-Alder reaction was investigated. Among the examined onium salt catalysts, cyclic trialkylsulfonium tetrakis[3,5-bis(trifluoromethyl)phenyl]borate possessing a non-coordinating counter anion was the most effective. Details of the activation modes of cyclic trialkylsulfonium and tetraalkylammonium salts were discussed on the basis of DFT calculation.
