Cyclopentadiene reacting with methacrolein to form different norbornene enantiomers

Description:

Asymmetric Diels-Alder reaction of cyclopentadiene and methacrolein. The chiral acyloxyborane catalyst (CAB) helps control the stereochemical outcome of this cycloaddition reaction. (Image by MIT OpenCourseWare.)
