______ _____ _____
10. The figure below shows the orbitals involved in the concerted movement of the 6 pi electrons in the formation of the Diels-Alder adduct. This process is allowed (=possible) due to the matching symmetry of the terminal diene HOMO orbitals with those of the dienophile LUMO orbitals (on the left). Determine based on this requirement for an allowed process, whether the reaction shown on the right is possible. Draw the orbitals into the structures on the right to support your answer.
Reaction on the right allowed or not: ____________
