|Title:|| Preparation of 6-oxa-1-azatricyclo(22.214.171.124.sup.2,7)dodecane-5-ones|
|Abstract:||The invention relates to the production of compounds of the general formula: ##STR1## wherein X is selected from the group consisting of oxygen, CH.sub.2 and CH radicals, and when X designates oxygen, R designates alkyl, isoalkyl, aralkyl, and substituted aralkyl groups and when X designates CH.sub.2 then R designates alkyl, phenyl or substituted phenyl group, and A-B is a single bond, and when X designates CH.sub.2, R designates alkyl, phenyl or substituted phenyl groups and A-B is a double bond; and physiologically acceptable salts of these, and pharmaceutical composition containing the same as active ingredient.|

|Claims:||1. A process for the production of a compound of the formula: ##STR8## wherein R is selected from the group consisting of lower alkyl, cyclopentyl and cyclohexyl, which comprises condensing 2-methylene 3-quinuclidinone with a lower alkyl-substituted R-acetoacetate wherein R has the same definition as above in the presence of sodium alkoxide, and treating the thus obtained intermediate with a mineral acid and water to yield the corresponding 1,4-ethano-6-oxo-7- R-1,2,3,4,6,7,8,8a-octahydroquinoline, which latter is is reduced with hydrogen in the presence of catalytic quantities of palladium on carbon to yield the desired product. |
2. A process for the production of a compound of the formula: ##STR9## wherein R is selected from the group consisting of thienyl, phenyl, methylphenyl, methoxyphenyl, chlorophenyl, trifluoromethylphenyl, aminophenyl, di-loweralkylaminophenyl and benzyl, which comprises reacting 2-methylene-3-quinuclidinone with a compound of the formula CH.sub.3 --CO--CH.sub.2 -- R wherein R has the same definition as above in the presence of sodium alkoxide to yield the corresponding o,4-ethano-6-oxo-7- R -1,2,3,4,6,7,8,8a-octahydroquinoline which latter is reduced with hydrogen in the presence of a catalytic quantity of palladium on carbon to yield the desired product.
