The hetero Diels-Alder reaction of 1-amino-3-siloxy-1,3-butadiene with a range of unactivated carbonyl compounds and imines proceeds in good yields readily under remarkably mild conditions  at room temperature and in the absence of Lewis acid catalysts. The cycloadducts can be converted directly to the corresponding dihydro-4-pyrones and dihydro-4-pyridones.
