Concepts and reason Diels alder reaction: Diels alder reaction is a 4+2 cycloaddition reaction between diene and dienophile. In this reaction, three pi-bonds will break to form two sigma bonds and one pi-bond.
Fundamentals Diels alder reaction follows a concerted, mechanistic pathway; that means that the reaction is a one-step mechanism.
It is clear from the above example that there are three pi-bonds from diene and dienophile to produce two new sigma bonds and one pi-bond in the products.

Step 1 of 2 ^
The given reaction condition is drawn below.
It is clear that the reaction refers to a Diels alder reaction which refers to 4+2 cycloaddition.
Explanation Common mistakes Hint for next step The given reactions indicate the Diels alder reaction of a 4+2 cycloaddition type. In this reaction, butadiene acts as a diene and the diethyl 2, 3-dimethylmaleate acts as a dienophile.
Step 2 of 2 ^
The given reaction condition is drawn below. The product during the Diels alder reaction is written below in a reaction:
Explanation Common mistakes
The given reaction represents the Diels alder reaction: during the reaction, three pi-bonds (two from diene and one from dienophile) will break to form two new sigma bonds and one pi-bond in 1,2-dimethylcyclohex-4-ene-1,2-dicarboxylate.
