Tricyclic diesters were synthesized in yields of 70.4–90.8% by the addition of С2–С5 monobasic carboxylic acids to tricyclo[,6]dec-3-еn-8-yl acetate in the presence of a BF3·OEt2 catalyst. One of the synthesized diesters, tricyclodec-3,8-diyl diacetate, has a pleasant smell with a citrus scent and can be used in different perfume compositions as a flavoring.
