The first example of a [5+2] cycloaddition reaction wherein the olefin of the
vinylcyclopropyl moiety is constrained in a carbocycle was explored, and possible reasons on the lack of reactivity of the substrate were studied. A simple model substrate was synthesized and subjected to cycloaddition conditions to determine if the reason for the lack of reactivity was related to the complexity of the substrate, or if the lack of “conjugative character” of the cyclopropyl ring with respect to the olefin is responsible. A more complex bicyclic substrate possessing an angular methyl group at the ring junction was also synthesized and explored, with evidence supporting the current theory of deconjugation of the cyclopropyl moiety.
