The structure of 3,6-methano-12b-p-tolyl-2a,3,4,5,6,6a,7,12b-octahydro-2H-3,1-benzoxazino[2,3-a]isoindol-8-one (C23H23NO2, Mr = 345.42), prepared from 2-p-toluoylbenzoic acid and diexo-3-hydroxymethylbicyclo[2.2.1]heptyl-2-amine, has been established by X-ray crystallography from diffractometer data: it crystallizes in the triclinic space group P1 with a = 8.186(2) Å, b = 8.683(2) Å, c = 13.324(5) Å, α = 83.46(4)°, β = 75.48(6)°, γ = 77.60(4)°, V = 893.6(4) Å3, Z = 2, Dc = 1.284 g cm-3 and μ(Cu Kα) = 0.641 mm-1. The structure was solved by direct methods and refined to R = 0.061 for 3685 observed reflections. The molecule exhibits diexo-annelation between the 1,3-oxazine ring and the norbornane moiety. The p-tolyl group and norbonane annelation hydrogens are trans and the 1,3-oxazine ring is fused to an almost planar γ-lactam ring. Consequently, the six-membered hetero ring assumes an irregular conformation among the canonical forms 1S6, 1T3 and B3,6.
