The reductive amination of d-fenchone by aliphatic nitriles has been studied. A probable reaction pathway is suggested, and the stereochemical composition of the products has been determined. It has been established with the aid of13C NMR that the reaction forms a mixture of isomeric optically active N-alkyl-1,3,3-trimethylbicyclo[2.2.1]hept-2-ylamines with a 3:1 ratio of endo and exo isomers. The absolute configurations of the amines synthesized have been determined.
