Oxidation of triamantane by various oxidation procedures was studied. Besides minor amounts of monosubstituted derivatives, the oxidation afforded mainly disubstituted derivatives, particularly hydroxytriamantanone and triamantanedione. The reactions were monitored by gas-liquid chromatography and the products were identified by mass spectrometry.
