Synthesis and Structure of 2,2,-Bis(2,2,5-trimethyl-pyrrolidinyl)methane

Herbert Hommer, Heinrich Nöth, Werner Ponikwar and Susana Rojas-Limab

Reaction of 2,5,5-trimethyl-Δ1-pyrrolidine-N-oxide with methyl lithium yields 2,2′-bis(1-hydroxy- 2,2,5-trimethyl-pyrrolidinyl)methane which is reduced by Raney nickel/hydrogen to the corresponding amine. Both molecules are present in the meso-configuration in the solid state. While the hydroxylamine derivative shows intermolecular O-H···O bridge bonding no intermolecular N···H-N interaction is observed for the amine.
