The presence of nitrogen atom either on the diene or the dienophile structure gives rise to aza or imino-Diels-Alder reactions (DARs). Among hetero-DARs, imino-dienophiles yields numerous functionalized compounds with numerous biological activities including but not limited to antifungal, antibacterial and enzymatic properties. Density functional theory (DFT) using the B3LYP functional at the 6-31+G (d, p) basis set along with topological studies (QTAIM) were used for the investigation of 10 different (SD1-SD10) DARs which differ in the nature of substituents groups attached to the diene molecule. The study indicates higher electron density and stronger interaction for substituted dienes with the cycloalkanes, furan, carbonyl, and -OH groups. It was observed in the HOMO-LUMO energy differences that the bulky groups; SD3, SD4, and SD6 had destabilization energy of -7.86 and 0.09, -7.88 and 0.10 and -7.50 and -0.014 eV respectively in their HOMO and LUMO levels while the halogen substituted dienes SD1, SD2, and SD5 had -8.20 and -0.32, -8.31 and -0.34 and -8.19 and -0.20 eV respectively. The study showed that synthesis of hetero-nuclear aza-cyclohexene is achieved faster with furan substituent of energy gap 7.534 eV and molecular hardness of 3.677 compared to 7.799 (SD7) -8.100 eV (SD8) and 3.899 (SD7) - 4.050 (SD8) respectively scored by other substituents noting that smaller energy gap leads to higher reactivity. HCOCH3 (SD8) retarded the rate of the reaction by about 58% (unspontaneous) following the calculated Gibb’s free energy of activation while SD6 in the ELF analysis showed complete covalent character against other cycloalkanes that showed dual characteristics of a double and single bond between N-C at their transition states.
