Cycloadditions between nitrile oxides and cis-4-benzoylamino-2-cyclopenten-1-ol offer an example in which a strong intramolecular hydrogen bond completely offsets the syn-directing ability of the cyclopentene substituents. Solvents affected the conformational equilibrium of the cyclopentene dipolarophile but did not sizeably influence the cycloaddition selectivity, showing the absence of directing effects between the addends. Removal of the intramolecular hydrogen bond by OH protection or oxidation activated the syn-directing ability of the amido substituent and provided a convenient route to syn stereoselection.
