Intramolecular cycloadditions with high regio- and stereocontrol are important methods for the efficient assembly of complex molecular structures. Efficient routes to the synthesis of norbornadiene-tethered nitrile oxides have been developed, and their intramolecular 1,3-dipolar cycloadditions were studied. The cycloadditions occurred in good yields for a variety of substrates and were found to be highly regio- and stereoselective.
