3,5,7-Trioxapentacyclo[,8.04,11.0 6-10]dodecane, the parent compound of novel diacetal trioxacages, was synthesized from maleic anhydride cyclopentadiene adduct 1 by a four-step sequence. Attempts for the synthesis of monoaza dioxa-cage 12 failed. Ozonolysis of compound 9 in CH2Cl2-EtOH (1:1) at -78 °C followed by reduction with Me2S gave 13 in 65% yield.
