Radical cyclisation reaction of the bromoenones $6 $and $7$, obtained from (R)-phenyl carvone $3$, gave a mixture of bicyclo [2.2.2] and [3.2.1] octanones via competitive 6-exo trig and 5-exo trig modes. On the other hand, radical cyclisation reaction of the alcohol $12$ furnished the bicyclo[3.2.1]-octanol $15$ as the major cyclised product, where as the alcohol 13 furnished the bicyclo[2.2.2]octanol $18$ as the major cyclised product. An explanation based on conformational rigidity due to the intramolecular hydrogen bonding between the hydroxy and methoxy groups is proposed, and proved by the formation of bicyclo[2.2.2]octanes as major cyclised products with the corresponding acetates $19$ and $20$.
