Bicyclic diselenane containing a norbornane skeleton was synthesized by the reaction of fenchone hydrazone with Se2Br2. Initially formed selenofenchone further reacted with another molar amount of Se2Br2 to afford Wagner-Meerwein rearranged diselenane. Camphor hydrazone also reacted with Se2Br2 to afford the corresponding diselenane, whereas no rearranged product was formed.
