Looking at the big picture in activation strain model/energy decomposition analysis: the case of the orthopara regioselectivity rule in Diels–Alder reactions

The regioselectivity of the DA reaction is predicted by the ortho–para rule which has been explained from FMO theory. Using DFT calculations and ASM/EDA, we found that the results vary depending the position where it is performed.

Switching of regioselectivity in base-mediated diastereoselective annulation of 2,3-epoxy tosylates and their N-tosylaziridine analogs with 2-mercaptobenzimidazole

Benzimidazole-based tricyclic compounds have been synthesized via base-mediated diastereoselective cyclization of 2,3-epoxy tosylates and their N-tosylaziridine analogs with 2-mercaptobenzimidazole.
