Strecker type reaction of ethyl 2-oxocyclohexaneacetate with sodium cyanide and ammonium acetate gave 7a-cyano-octahydro-cis-1H-indol-2-one (2a) as a single product, which was alkylated to the N-alkyl derivatives. The cyano group in 2a was convertible to ethoxycarbonylmethyl group by reaction with the Reformatsky reagent generated from ethyl bromoacetate. In the case of the N-methyl derivative 2b, the cyano group was transformed into ethoxycarbonylacetyl group under the same reaction conditions.
