The reaction between an alkene of at least one allylic hydrogen (ene) and another unsaturated compound (i.e., enophile) to form a new olefinic compound with a new bond connecting the two unsaturated termini, and the allylic hydrogen is transferred to the enophile is generally known as Alder ene reaction This reaction is also known as ene cyclization, ene functionalization or Alder ene synthesis. This reaction has very wide applications in organic synthesis Conia has developed an intramolecular version of Alder ene reaction of unsaturated ketones and generally known as Conia reaction.
