In this review some theoretical studies devoted to the mechanism of domino cycloaddition reactions are summarised. The analysis of the stationary points along the reaction pathways: transitions structures, intermediates and adducts, allows rationalising the chemoselectivity, regioselectivity and stereoselectivity experimentally observed.

Keywords: domino cycloadditions, selectivity, mechanisms, transition structures, quantum chemistry calculations
