Alkylation of 2-phenyl-3-piperidone (17) with methyl iodide or methyl acrylate furnished the 4,4-dialkylated derivatives (18) or (19), respectively. This unexpected enolization towards the less substituted form can be interpreted considering the appreciable steric strain which would exist in the more substituted enolate (21).
