Furan undergoes a diene-synthesis type of reaction with acrylonitrile to give stereoisomeric 3, 6-endoxotetrahydrobenzonitriles whose configurations are established by PMR spectra. 2-Methylfuran undergoes a similar reaction with acrylonitrile. Some aspects of the relationship between the diene substitution reaction and substitutive addition in the furan series are considered.
