A series of novel epibatidine analogues containing a pyridinyloxymethyl group at the 2-position were prepared and evaluated as ligands for the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR). The in vitro binding affinities (Ki) of the 7-azabicyclo[2.2.1]heptane derivatives were measured relative to [3H]-(-)-cytisine in rat caudate-putamen tissue.
