In this paper we describe the synthesis of a γ,δ-unsaturated aldehyde from a bicyclic Diels-Alder adduct, to be used in future electrocyclic reaction studies. A number of reactions produced undesired materials resulting from the interaction between functions, forcing the use of partial protection to accomplish a synthesis that would be otherwise straightforward. Suggestions to account for the results are given.
