2,3-Dimethyl-1,3-butadiene undergoes Diels Alder cycloaddition reaction and it also participates in polymerization reactions. It is also involved in manufacturing of synthetic rubber.
For examples of use in Diels-Alder reactions, see: Org. Synth. Coll., 3, 310 (1955); 7, 4 (1990). For an asymmetric Diels-Alder reaction catalyzed by a chiral acyloxyborane, see: Org. Synth. Coll., 9, 722 (1998).
For use in phosphole synthesis, see Dichlorophenylphosphine, A10284./n
