Bai, X., Mascarella, S., Bowen, W. D., & Carroll, F. (1994). A novel asymmetric synthesis of 3-benzyl-1,2,3,4,5,6-hexahydro-11-alkyl-2,6-methano-3-benzazocines. Journal of the Chemical Society. Chemical Communications, 1994(20), 2401-2402. DOI: 10.1039/C39940002401


9-Alkyl 6,7-benzomorphans (1,2,3,4,5,6-hexahydro-11-alkyl-2,6-methano-3-benzazocines) are important selective ligands of sigma receptor sites; their asymmetric synthesis starting with (1R, 2R)- or (1S, 2S)-1-hydroxymethyl-2-alkyl-2-alkyl-1,2-dihydronaphthalene is described.
