A new series of rigid analogues (1a-g, 2a-g) of the previously reported analgesic 3-cinnamyl-8-propionyl-3,8-diazabicyclo[3.2.1]octane (I) and its reverted isomer 3-propionyl-8-cinnamyl (II) were synthesized, in which the cinnamyl substituent is incorporated in benzocondensed bicyclic systems. Binding assays for the affinity towards mu receptors indicated that, while in the reverted series 2 the beta-naphthylmethyl (2d) and the benzocycloheptenylmethyl derivative (2g) favorably compared with II, all compounds 1 displayed a mu-affinity lower than that of the parent I. Modeling studies suggest that the flexibility of the cinnamyl side chain plays an important role for activity. (C) 1998 Elsevier Science S.A. All rights reserved.
