New analogues related to 2-methylenetricyclo[]undecan-3-one (4), which shows potent antiproliferating activity, i.e., 2-(methoxymethoxy)-4-methylenetricyclo[]undecan-3-one (5), (1S*,5R*,7S*)-7-(methoxymethoxy)- and hydroxy-2-methylenetricyclo[]undecan-3-ones (6 and 7), and (1S*,5R*,8S*)-8-(methoxymethoxy)- and hydroxy-2-methylenetricyclo[]-undecan-3-ones (8 and 9), were readily synthesized through skeletal transformations of derivatives of tricyclo []undecan-2-one (2).
