This thesis is concerned with the synthesis, spectral properties and reactivities of bicyclo(5.3.1.)undec-7ene-11-one and bicyclo(5.3.1.)undec-7(11)-ene-8-one in each of which the double bond is at the bridgehead, in defiance of Bredt's rule. These compounds were prepared by stereo-specific beta-elimination of bicyclic intermediates synthesised by elaboration of cyclooctanone. The spectroscopic properties of the two enones have been compared and the structure and geometry of the former has been determined by X-ray analysis of a heavy atom derivative.
