Abstract

Oxidative decarboxylation of [n.2.2]propellane carboxylic acids (1a-c) with lead tetraacetate gave the bicyclic acetates (2b, c) having a bridgehead double bond and/or the tricyclic acetates (3a, b) in good yields. Vapor phase thermolysis of 3a or 3b afforded the bridgehead olefin 2a or 2b quantatively.
