The title compound {systematic name: (1R,2R,5R)-(+)-2-hydroxy-2,6,6- trimethyl-3-[(3-pyridyl)methylimino]bicyclo-[3.1.1]heptane}, C 16H22O, was obtained by the condensation reaction of (1R,2R,5R)-(+)-2α-hydroxypinan-3-one with 3-(aminomethyl)pyridine in the presence of boron trifluoride. The compound was obtained as an enantiomerically pure isomer, and has the 1R,2R,5R configuration. In the crystal structure, molecules are linked together by intermolecular O-H⋯N hydrogen bonds between the hydroxy group of the pinanone group and the N atom of the pyridine ring, forming molecular chains.
