The stereochemistry of the title compound, C19H 21N3, has been confirmed by a single-crystal X-ray analysis. The bicyclic ring system adopts a cis-decalin-like conformation, which presumably minimizes steric repulsion involving the bridgehead phenyl substituent. The conformation of the amino group appears to be dictated by a nitrogen anomeric effect. © 2006 International Union of Crystallography. All rights reserved.
