A Short Synthesis of 1-Azaadamantan-4-one and the syn and anti Isomers of 4-Amino-1-azaadamantane
Reductive homologation of 1,4-cyclohexanedione monoethylene acetal (1) with tosylmethylisocyanide and subsequent reduction with lithium aluminum hydride gave 1,4-dioxaspiro[4.5]decan-8-ylmethylamine (3) which was converted to 1-azatricyclo[188.8.131.52,7] decan-4-one (4) via a known double-Mannich condensation. Reductive amination of this ketone gave the corresponding 1-azatricyclo [184.108.40.206,7]decan-4(s and r)-amines (9 and 10) which were separated on a multigram scale as their corresponding tosylamides 7 and 8, followed by deprotection.
