A novel 7, 14β-ethano-bridged opiate (1) was prepared from the known 14-alkenylcodeinone (3) in two steps. Selective reduction of the enone double bond of 3 followed by ozonolysis led to an aldehyde intermediate, which was cyclized in situ through an intramolecular aldol condensation to give the rigid hexacyclic derivative (1).
