The bicycle-(5, 5, 0)-dodecane system consists of two fused seven membered rings. (I) The numbers five, five and zero are arrived at by the fact that counting the number of carbon atoms from one bridgehead carbon to the other yields five, five and zero by the three possible routes. This system can exist in several states of unsaturation. One such state has been given the name heptalene. (II) The object of this project is to propose a new synthesis of the bicycle-(5, 5, 0)-dodecane system.
