4,4’-Dimethoxyselenobenzophenone combines as a diene with methyl propiolate, ethyl propiolate, and phenylacetylene producing 1H-2-benzoselenopyrans; the primary [4+2] cycloaddition is followed by 1,3-prototropy. This reaction proceeds regioselectively. On the other hand, a nonaromatic ketone was obtained by using propiolic acid as the substrate.
