Nine analogues of mecamylamine (2) which differ in the number and substitution pattern of methyl groups, were prepared. In four of these analogues the amine functionality is in an endo orientation. Enantiomers of 2-endo- and 2-exo-N-methylfenchylamine (25 and 26, respectively) were also prepared. The hydrochloride salts of these compounds were tested for(More)
