    [4 + 2] cycloaddition reactions have been a valuable research topic for scientists for some time now. More specifically, the combination of dienes and carbonyl containing compounds have been studied primarily for their ability to combine together to form six membered oxygen heterocycles (1). The synthesis of oxygen heterocycles is a valuable tool, as these molecules are precursors to some natural products and they are also components in the synthesis of various carbohydrates (4). The general method utilized to form oxygen heterocycles was to combine an aldehyde as the heterodienophile and
