'Soft energy' provided within a thin film microfluidic platform, namely a vortex fluidic device (VFD), is effective in accelerating and promoting Diels-Alder reactions in the absence of any catalyst. Diels-Alder cycloadducts generated from different 9-substituted anthracenes and N-maleimides are formed in high yield in an aqueous medium using the confined mode of operation of the VFD. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.
