A one pot synthesis of 3-azabicyclo[3.3.1]nonane-6,9-diones is described via the additibn of acryloyl chloride to enamines of N-carboxy-4 piperidones. Yields of bicycle were highest when additions were made to vigorously boiling solutions of morpholine enamines. X-Ray analysis of an azabicyclic system revealed a chair-chair structure to be the preferred conformation. Hydrolysis of 3-azabicyclo[3.3.1]nonane-6,9-diones (IIa) and (IIb) yielded the monocyclic carboxylic acids (IIIa) and (IIIb).
