General description

2-Adamantanone on deprotonation in the gas phase affords the corresponding β-enolate anion. It reacts with 1,1-dilithio-1-sila-2,3,4,5-tetraphenylsilole to yield 5-silafulvene.


2-Adamantanone was used in the synthesis of dispiro N-Boc-protected 1,2,4-trioxane and (+/-)-1-(adamantan-2-yl)-2-propanamine.

Deprotonation of 2-adamantanone (1) in the gas phase affords the corresponding beta-enolate anion. This ion was independently prepared by the fluoride-induced desilylation of 4-trimethylsilyl-2-adamantanone, and its reactivity and thermodynamic properties were measured (DeltaH degrees(acid) = 394.7 +/- 1.4, EA =...

Dispiro N-Boc-protected 1,2,4-trioxane 2 was synthesised via Mo(acac)(2) catalysed perhydrolysis of N-Boc spirooxirane followed by condensation of the resulting beta-hydroperoxy alcohol 10 with 2-adamantanone. N-Boc 1,2,4-trioxane 2 was converted to the amine 1,2,4-trioxane hydrochloride salt 3 which was subsequently used...
