A study of the isomerization of methyl (E)-3-quinuclidinylideneacetate derivative to the corresponding Z-isomer is reported. Theoretical calculations, performed using the MM3 molecular mechanics method, are in agreement with the experimental results. A facile and practical procedure for the stereoselective synthesis of methyl (Z)-3-quinuclidinylideneacetate derivative, via the Horner-Wadsworth-Emmons reaction with sodium methoxide in methanol, is also described.
