Intramolecular photoaddition of the 1,7-diene system in 4-(1,5-dimethylhex-4-enyl)cyclohex-2-enone (3) yielded, inter alia, two ketones containing the tricyclo[, 11]undecan-8-one system. The structure and stereochemistry of these ketones has been determined from X-ray crystallographic analyses of suitable derivatives.
