Abstract

The dimerization products of criocerine (1) are different (2 or 3) depending on whether the reaction is carried out in acetic acid or trifluoroacetic acid. The highly strained product 3 rearranges spontaneously through a retro Diels-Alder reaction. All structures involved were thoroughly investigated by NMR spectroscopic methods.
