Two conformationally constrained tropane derivatives were prepared as rigid nicotinic acetylcholine receptor ligands. A palladium catalyzed intramolecular α-arylation reaction was employed to generate the tricyclic compounds in good yields from N-(bromo-chloropyridylmethyl)-8-azabicyclo[3.2.1]octan-3-ones.
