Azatriquinane, a tricyclic amine with rigid, hemispherical topology, is synthesized in six steps from pyrrole. This first example of a [2.2.2]cyclazine can be oxidatively dimerized to a novel, highly strained heptacycle or oxidized with chlorine to give an azatriquinacene, a theoretical precursor to diazadodecahedrane via Woodward dimerization.
