A facile, moderate to high yielding synthesis of hexahydro-(di)-benzazocinones is described via an intramolecular N-acyliminium ion cyclisation. The iminium ion intermediates are formed from the readily available 4,4-diethoxybutyl amides with an excess of triflic acid. For electron-withdrawing substituents, better yields were obtained from the pre-formed 2-hydroxypyrrolidine amides. From NMR studies, at ambient temperatures the pyrrolo-benzazocin-3-ones exist as a slowly equilibrating mixture of two conformations.
