Rearrangement of a homobrendane derivative 8a to perhydro-1,4-methanoindenesy stem 9a could be brought about either by p-toluenesulfonic acid or boron trifluoride etherate. Similarly, rearrangement of 8b-d led to the formation of perhydro-1,4-methanoindened erivatives 9b-d. On the basis of the location of substituents in the starting material and the product, a probable mechanistic pathway has been suggested. The appropriate modification of the peripheral functionalities in 9 led to efficient total syntheses of (f)-copacamphor (15a),(f)-ylangocamphor (16a), and their homologues 15b and 16b.
