Τhe synthesis of 3,7-diiodo-tricyclo[3.3.1.03,7]nonane, the main precursor of noradamantene, by iodination of the corresponding diol via its dimesylate affords a threefold higher yield than the direct iodination of the diol. Neither the dimesylate nor the cyclic sulfate of the diol yields noradamantene upon reduction with sodium amalgam. © 2009 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
