The transformations of 2a-hydroxy-2,6,6-trimethylbicyclo[3.1.1]heptan-3-one under the conditions of acid catalysis have been studied. It has been shown that this compound can be used for the synthesis of products of various structures: a bridged bicyclic lactone (1,8,8-trimethyl-2-oxabicyclo[3.2.1]octan-3-one), an aromatic compound (carvacrol), and nitrogen-containing derivatives of p-menthane such as 8-acylamino-p-menth-6-en-2-ones. The structures of the compounds synthesized were shown by the results of1H and13C NMR spectroscopies.
