The stereochemistry of formation of Schiff′s bases de rived from norbornen-2-one and 7-oxanorbornen-2-one has been studied by1H and13C n.m.r. spectroscopy. Elucidation of the reason for the preference for the £-isomer in both cases has been attempted by molecular mechanics calculations. This preference may be justified by A1,3 allylic interactions. © 1988, The Royal Society of Chemistry. All rights reserved.
