Cycloaddition reactions are intermolecular
pericyclic processes involving the formation of a
ring from two independent conjugated systems
through the formation of two new -bonds at
the termini of the -systems. The reverse
process is called cycloreversion or is referred to
as a retro-reaction.
Cycloaddition reactions can be discussed under
three important class of reactions
 [2+2] Cycloaddition
 [4+2] Cycloaddition [Diels-Alder reaction]
 [1,3]-Dipolar cycloaddition.
Thermally, [2 + 2] cycloaddition is geometrically
forbidden, as the HOMO and LUMO of the
participating olefins would not be able to
achieve the orbital overlap required for σ-bond
formation.
On the other hand, the photochemical [2 + 2]
cycloaddition is allowed and leads to
stereospecific cyclobutane formation.
If a closer look is taken about the thermal [2+2]
cycloaddition, as it is geometrically forbidden, but not
orbital symmetry forbidden.
It can be explained on the basis of two new concepts,
suprafaciality and antarafaciality, The consequence of
suprafaciality and antarafaciality is that many
processes that are Woodward-Hoffmann allowed can
be forbidden to occur because of geometrical
constraints on the system
Suprafaciality- when, in a
pericyclic reaction, the bond
forming interaction occurs on
the same face of a π-system,
Antarafaciality- when, in a
pericyclic reaction, the bond
forming interactions occur on
opposite faces of a π-system.
Removal of steric bulk (H-
atoms) around the π-system
(as in the ketene) allows
antarafacial bond formation
that is geometrically
forbidden in the ethylene [2
+ 2].
In the suprafacial-suprafacial cases, the cycloadditions are
symmetry allowed and geometrically allowed. In the
suprafacial-antarafacial cases, the cycloadditions are
symmetry allowed and generally geometrically disallowed.
Reaction is stereo-specific. Least hindered transition state is observed
Reactions of Enones with Alkenes
Reactions of Enones with Alkenes: The first step in Corey’s
synthesis of caryophyllene involved addition of cyclohexenone
to isobutene to give predominantly the trans-cyclobutane (head-
to-tail) derivative

Addition of C=C and C=O [Paterno-Buchi Reaction]
If an aldehyde or ketone -system replaces one of the alkene
units, then photochemical [2+2] cycloaddition is termed the
Paterno–Buchi reaction and an oxetane product is produced.
Typically a mixture of stereo- and regioisomers of the oxetane
is formed in intermolecular cycloadditions of this type,
although the use of small-ring alkenes favours the cis-fused
ring products.
Reactions are REGIOSELECTIVE
Addition of C=C and C=O [Paterno-Buchi Reaction]
Synthesis of the antifungal agent (+)-preussin, cycloaddition
of benzaldehyde with the dihydropyrrole led to the cis-fused
products [A] and [B]. Hydrogenolysis of the benzylic C–O
bond and reduction of the carbamate of the diastereomer [A]
gave the target compound preussin.

Addition of C=C and C=O [Paterno-Buchi Reaction]
Photocycloaddition of furan with nonanal gave the exo
product [C], which was converted to the antifungal
metabolite avenaciolide.
3,4-Dimethylfuran and (3-Benzyloxy)-propanal undergoes
Paterno-Buchi reaction to give oxetane derivative [D].

HOMO/LUMO combination is anti-bonding at one end.
However, if LUMO is rotated at an angle of 90° and
HOMO & LUMO approaches perpendicular to each
other than 2πs+2πa interaction is possible which allows
the thermal reaction to take place
